Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Registries from North America, Australia and Europe are rich sources of clinical data on pregnancy after kidney transplantation. Single-center reports of pregnancy outcomes are limited by small sample sizes but not by the potential reporting bias that can impact registry data. Despite the differences in data pools, the obstetric and graft outcomes reported by single centers and registries have been similar. The majority of pregnancies are successful in renal transplant patients, but the risk of complications like pre-eclampsia, low birth weight and premature birth is high. Pregnancy has no significant impact on graft function or survival when baseline function is normal.
