What Are Chances of Recurrence After Transplant in FSGS

What Are Chances of Recurrence After Transplant in FSGSIn focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), some of the glomeruli are damaged, and have tiny scars. Because it is difficult to treat, many patients develop to kidney failure quickly. Kidney transplant is a better choice than dialysis for kidney patients. But for FSGS, the recurrence rate is a little high. What are chances of recurrence after transplant in FSGS?

FSGS has a high recurrence rate after transplant.

Primary FSGS has a recurrence rate of 20–50% after first kidney transplantation leading to graft failure in 10-20% of patient in 10 years after kidney transplantation. And in the subsequent transplants, recurrence rate will be as higher as 80%.

If you have decided to do kidney transplant, what can help you increase the success rate?

FSGS is associated with the immune complexes in body. If you just put a healthy kidney into your body rather than cleanse the blood. It is difficult for you to get rid of FSGS after transplant. Therefore, before kidney transplant, you had better do immune absorption to clear those cycling immune complexes from your body.

Alternatives to kidney transplant for FSGS patients

If you still have urine output, you can choose alternatives to repair kidney damage and promote kidney function so as to avoid dialysis or kidney transplant. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we use Toxin-Removing Treatment. It makes use of various Chinese medicine therapies such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy and so on to remove massive waste products from body to make internal environment clean for kidney self-healing and other medication. It can also improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys to provide them with enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine to speed up kidney recovery. After a short period of treatment, symptoms such as swelling, skin itching, weakness feeling, anemia, high blood pressure and so on will get relieved. After a long period of treatment, your kidney function will be improved, and then you can reduce dialysis or even avoid dialysis and kidney transplant.
