Objective: Transplant renal artery stenosis (TRAS) and post-transplant arterial hypertension is a treatable cause of allograft dysfunction and graft loss. The risk factors for the development of TRAS include: donor age, prolonged and delayed graft function, cold ischemia time,concomitant CMV infection and surgical technique. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) has proven successful in treating TRAS in 60-90% of cases by providing renal reperfusion. In this study,we evaluated six TRAS cases in our clinic.
