article description
A follow-up is provided for 64 patients treated with renal transplantation at the University of Colorado before 31 March 1964. The 25-year survival was 15/64 (23.4%) and 14 patients (22%) are still alive after 25 1/2 to 27 years. There are 9 other survivors in the world from this era, distributed in 4 American and 2 European centers. All of the 25-year survivors received their grafts from living related donors.
