Graft and patient survival after renal transplantation in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). For this analysis only patients with first transplantations using a cadaveric donor kidney were included. Both graft and patient survival were calculated for 165 patients with SLE who received transplantation between 1984 and 1992. These data are compared with the results in 21,726 patients with non-SLE glomerular diseases who received transplantation in the same time period. Both graft and patient survival were not significantly different between the two groups. (From Berden [14]; with permission. Data from G. Persijn, Eurotransplant, Leiden, the Netherlands.)
