Actuarial cadaveric survival curves in patients with or without glomerulonephritis (GN) as the primary disease. A Significantly worse renal graft survival in patients receiving grafts before 1983 if their underlying disease was GN, rather than any other disease (P < 0.015; diabetes excluded). B, Since the introduction of cyclosporine (in transplantations after 1983), graft survival curves are the same for patients with or without GN. For patients receiving a living related graft, however, GN still carries an excess risk of recurrent disease causing graft failure [4]. (Adapted from from Michielsen [16].)
