Abstract

Background. Swine constitute a well-characterized large animal model for kidney transplantation (K-Tx) although the uretero-neocystostomy represents a crucial aspect because of the very small caliber of the ureter and the mucosal susceptibility to the edema during surgical management. Besides infectious and occlusive complications limited the employment of a stent and the peculiar anatomy of the species prevents its removal without an operative approach. These features find an equivalent in children (
