Long-term Follow-up of Living-Donor Kidney Transplantation after Cadaveric Lung Transplantation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Although chronic kidney disease (CKD) commonly develops after lung transplantation (LT), living-donor kidney transplantation (LDKT) for CKD after LT is known to provide favorable outcomes. We describe the longterm follow-up findings of a patient who underwent LDKT after bilateral cadaveric LT. A 37-year-old male underwent LDKT for CKD 18 years after receiving bilateral cadaveric LT. He developed chronic lung allograft dysfunction (CLAD) 20 years after the LT; however, at 26 years after the initial LT, he is still alive with no progression of CLAD or CKD. KT could be a viable option for CKD even after LT in Japan.
