NDT - Article of the week
The association of calcium oxalate deposition in kidney allografts with graft and patient survival
Calcium oxalate (CaOx) deposition is an under-recognised cause of impaired kidney function. Palsson et al. report that CaOx deposition is both common after kidney transplantation and associated with adverse outcomes (DGF, graft failure and death). The paper is accessible here free of charge until this Sunday at 23.59 (UK time).
