    Treatment of Post-transplant Hypertension by
    Laparoscopic Bilateral Nephrectomy ?

    Transplantation 65 : 1182 – 1187, 1998

      


    Introduction – Hypertension is an important risk
    factor of cardiovascular disease and early non-immunologic
    graft failure.

      


    Often the cause of hypertension after grafting is
    unclear.

     


    Removal of native kidneys may help in reducing the
    blood pressure but open nephrectomy is associated
    with morbidity.

      


    A feasible procedure is laparoscopic nephrectomy
