COSTA, Antonio Paulo Nogueira and BELLO, Carmem Narvaes. Renal transplantation in Vater association patient: case report. Rev. Bras. Anestesiol. [online]. 2003, vol.53, n.3, pp.388-391. ISSN 0034-7094. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-70942003000300010.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Vater association is a polytopic disorder including several malformations of which radial hypoplasia is the most common observed at birth. This report aimed at describing a case of Vater association in a child submitted to renal transplantation. CASE REPORT: Male patient, 11 years old, 23 kg, Hbs positive, submitted to esophagostomy at 30 hours of life. Since 7 years of age patient is submitted to hemodialysis, currently via atrial catheter for the lack of other access ways. Renal transplantation with cadaver donor was performed without intercurrences with adequate diuresis after vascular anastomoses. Right iliac fossa hematoma was drained in the first postoperative day. Patient was discharged 21 days after transplantation with normal renal function. CONCLUSIONS: Vater association is an extremely rare and complex event and this report aimed at describing for the first time a renal transplantation with cadaver donor in a child with this congenital defect, the result of which has been fully satisfactory.
