PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study covered 182 patients after nephrectomy in the period from 1979 to 2008. The morphological and functional status of the remaining kidney was evaluated using ultrasound scanning and on a basis of serum levels of creatinine, as well as the glomerular filtration rate. Occurrence of proteinuria and blood pressure values were also verified.
RESULTS: The average creatinine serum levels increases after nephrectomy and is positively correlated with the age. The mean eGFR level is lower after nephrectomy and is correlated with kidney dimensions in the long-term control after nephrectomy, and with the age. The average systolic and diastolic blood pressure after nephrectomy in the long-term observation was higher as compare with values before procedure. Presence of protein in the urine of patients after nephrectomy correlated positively with increased blood pressure values.
CONCLUSIONS: Nephrectomy constitute the risk factor of development of CKD and hypertension. Patients after nephrectomy needs systematic nephrological care to prevent CKD progression.
