Peripheral vascular disease (PVD). Peripheral vascular disease is commonly associated with coronary artery disease, cerebral vascular disease, or both. However, PVD itself may require intervention before transplantation to prevent infection and sepsis after transplantation. In addition, some patients may have aortoiliac disease severe enough to require intervention before transplantation. Rarely, vascular disease is severe enough to make it difficult to find an artery suitable for the anastomosis of the allograft renal artery. (From Kasiske and coworkers [1]; with permission.)
