Özet

Owing to the limited donor pool at transplant centers, grafts may be taken from marginal donors with congenital abnormalities, one of the most common of which is a fusion abnormality. Horseshoe kidneys may be transplanted to a single recipient en bloc or to 2 recipients after division. In our clinic, 3 grafts (1 obtained from a living donor and 2 from a deceased donor) were successfully transplanted to 3 patients. In select patients, horseshoe kidneys may be used for transplant.
