RIVAS-NIETO, Andrea C.; CARCAMO, César P.; MUNARRIZ, César Loza  and  MIYAHIRA, Juan. Early physiological and morphological changes in the remnant kidney of living donors. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2020, vol.37, n.4, pp.733-738.  Epub Oct 06, 2020. ISSN 1726-4634.

In order to describe the early functional and morphological changes in the remnant kidney of living donors, a retrospective study was carried out at the Cayetano Heredia Hospital. Data from 55 individuals was included. Clinical and demographic data were obtained from the clinical records, as well as data for creatinine clearance, proteinuria, blood pressure and renal dimensions at 1, 2, 3, 6 and 12 months after kidney donation. The mean age was 40.88 (±9.84) years; 80% were women and the mean body mass index was 25.68 (±3.5) kg/m2. Linear and quadratic models were used to study physiological and morphological variables. During the follow-up time, glomerular filtration rate, proteinuria, diastolic blood pressure, and kidney length showed significant changes (p < 0.05).
