Proteinuria after Kidney Transplantation


Marius Miglinas *,Arvydas Laurinavicius ,Diana Lukasevic

Proteinuria is a significant complication affecting renal transplant recipients. It is linked to cardiovascular events,
a premature death and graft loss. The prevalence of proteinuria is close to 40% of renal transplant recipients per year. The causes of proteinuria are multiple: glomerular disease, anti-HLA class II antibodies, various medications and tubulointerstitial disease of the graft. It is very important to evaluate the cause of proteinuria, to reduce proteinuria and cardiovascular risk.
