Nowadays with the extension and development of renal transplantation centers, the best treatment of the patients with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) is renal transplantation. Renal allografts from deceased donors are being used in our center following legislation of the laws by the islamic parliament. Renal transplantation is evaluated by graft & patient survival. Therefore in this study graft and patient survival of recipients received kidney from related, unrelated and deceased donors were reviewed. Following preoperative examinations and live donor angiography, transplantation will be ready to perform. Renal transplantation was performed in 270 patients received kidney from unrelated and 44 from related and 125 from deceased donors. Graft and patient survival were measured. Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS soft ware, Kaplan – Meyer table, Cox regression and Logrank. In this study 439 patients were evaluated. There were no statistical differencesranged between 8 and 71 years (X between 3 groups. (P > 0.1). One year graft survivals of recipients who had received kidney from deceased, unrelated and related donors were 90%, 93% and 89% respectively. Three year graft survival in the mentioned groups were 82%, 91% and 84% respectively and 5 year graft survival were 80%, 91% and 81%respectively. Statistical analysis showed no significant differences between 3 groups. (P > 0.1) One year recipient survivals in the 3 groups were 95%, 98% and 93% respectively, 3 years patient survivals were 94%, 98% and 93% respectively and finally the 5 years survivals were 89%, 93% and 88% respectively which there were no significant differences. (P < 0.05) In conclusion, There were no significant differences in 1,3 and 5 years graft and patient survivals between recipients received kidney from live (related or unrelated) and deceased donors. Therefore deceased donors can be used as a valuable source in our country.
