Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Major anatomic injuries occurred in 18 of 151 (12%) en bloc kidneys. No injuries occurred among the in situ kidneys. The rates of delayed graft function were equal. All the kidneys removed by the in situ method were removed by one surgeon (ALH). The results are good enough to recommend the technique even without a randomized study.
