Objective: To compare early complications in patients with/without stents following renal transplantation and to determine whether routine stenting should be used in all renal transplant patients or not. Patients And Methods: 194 patients (108 males, 86 females, mean age: 45.2 ± 13.2 years) who were followed-up at the Division of Nephrology of Istanbul Bilim University between 2006 and 2013 were included in the study. Demographic characteristics, etiologies of renal disease, comorbidities, type of renal transplantation, early complications, delayed graft function were retrospectively recorded. All patients were divided into two groups according to stent replacement. Early complications were compared.
