Renal transplantation is the optimal treatment for patients with end-stage renal failure. During the period 1991 to 1995, a total of 279 renal transplantations were performed at the Jeddah Kidney Center. They included 115 kidneys from cadaveric donors and 164 living related donor transplants. There were 160 males and 119 females; age of the patients ranged between 4 and 45 years. During the follow-up period, 32 grafts were lost and 26 patients died. The overall 5-year graft and patient survival rates were 79.2% and 90.7% respectively. Sepsis and pulmonary embolism constituted the common causes of death.
