Abstract

Objectives: Renal allograft thrombosis is an important cause of early renal allograft loss. A previous study from our unit showed thrombosis rates in patients who received heparin that were similar to those who did not receive any thromboprophylaxis. This study evaluated the impact of aspirin prophylaxis on renal allograft thrombosis rates in pediatric renal transplant recipients.
