Sažetak
The number of elderly patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) as well as those with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are on the rise worldwide. Renal transplantation is now the treatment of choice for all ESRD patients, including and those thar are aged 65 or over. Namely, there is growing evidence showing that elderly patients, in the absence of contraindications, have better outcomes after renal transplantation than alternative forms of RRT. Although, survival, quality of life and economic advantages have been showed after transplantation, renal transplantation is still infrequently offered to older patients. Hereby, we present a case of an old woman who was transplanted in 1994. when “senior” program was still not established and when kidney transplantation in this age, was rarity in many countries. She lived 16 years and 8 months with a well functioned graft and died in the age of 89.
