Abstract

IVCiliac vein thrombosis has previously been considered to be a contraindication to renal transplantation because of the technical difficulties and the increased risk of graft thrombosis. We report two successful cases of adult-to-child kidney transplantation in which we anastomosed the graft renal vein to the recipient ovarian vein in the presence of IVC andor iliac vein thrombosis, with no short or long term vascular complications. Our experience, which adds to the successful reports from several other centers, suggests that the inability to use the iliocaval axis should no longer be considered a contraindication to pediatric renal transplantation.
