Title: Pregnancy after renal transplantation
Author: M. Ozban, A. S. Ozban, O. Birsen, M. Ceri, H. C. Aydin

Abstract: OBJECTIVE: A well-functioning renal transplant usually reverses ESRD-related infertility and allows the reproductive function to improve. In this study, we wanted to emphasize that women who have renal transplantation can live healthy pregnancies with a careful follow-up.
BACKGROUND: 204 patients underwent renal transplantation in our center and 84 of them were female. Five of our patients (one of them had two births) gave birth to a total of 6 pregnancies.
METHOD: All of these patients were evaluated according to the criteria by the organ transplant team and perinatologist before the pregnancy planning and during the pregnancy processes.
RESULTS: The mean age of the patients was 22.5 ± 4.5 (18–29) years. The creatinine level was below in 1.5 mg/dl in all patients in the pre-pregnancy period, and 1 + proteinuria was found in only two of them. Pregnancy periods varied between 31 weeks and 38 weeks. All births were performed by cesarean section and birth weight in babies ranged between 1650 and 3190 gram.
CONCLUSION: Pregnancy in the renal transplant recipient is high-risk and should be managed by a multidisciplinary team of high-risk obstetricians, perinatalogists and transplant nephrologists. It should be closely monitored in terms of complications during pregnancy (Tab. 5, Ref. 16).
