Abstract: 

Background: Studies reported that graft survivals with living kidney donors (LKD) are better than cadaveric kidney donors (CKD), while, other studies confirm good graft function and satisfactory graft survival from CKD. This study sought to compare graft survival after kidney transplantation in patients received kidney from CKD and LKD and their surgical complications in a single center in Iran.
Methods: This historical cohort study involved two groups. Group1 included 69 kidney recipients who received their renal transplant from CKD. The group 2 consisted of 143 renal transplant recipients with kidneys coming from LKD.
Findings: No significant differences existed in surgical complications between the two groups. Graft survival rates at 1, 3 and 4 years were 99, 85 and 85 percent in group1 and 99, 96 and 78 percent in group2. There was no significant difference in graft survival rates between the two groups.
Conclusion: Renal transplant from CKD is associated with good graft survival and low surgical complications.
Also, it is possible to transplant other organs from a cadaveric. So, in our experience, CKD may be considered an optimal option for renal transplantation.
