Sažetak:
Introduction: A large number of patients today with terminal kidney failure are elderly. For a small number of these patients a kidney transplant is a possible method of treatment. Aim: The goal of this work was to investigate the prevalence of hypertension among kidney transplant patients above the age of 65 and to analyze anti-hypertension therapy. Methods: The investigation included 27 patients, 15 male and 12 female, above the age of 65 who received a kidney transplant. The average age of the patients was 71.2±5.6 years. The average time spent on dialysis before the transplant was 2.7±2.1 years. The amount of time that had passed since the transplant was 6.6±4.6 years. The average values of creatinine were 135±38.2 µmol/L. Results: Of the number of patients analyzed, 25 (93%) had hypertension. In the anti-hypertension therapy five (20%) patients were taking one antihypertensive drug, 14 (56%) patients were taking two drugs and six (24%) patients were taking three or more drugs. The most frequently taken medicine was a calcium channel blocker (68%) and together angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB) and ACE-inhibitors (44% ; 32%). Of the analyzed patients, 13 (52%) achieved the target values for blood pressure. Conclusion: From the data acquired we can conclude that prevalence of hypertension in the elderly group of patients is very high. Also, in half of these patients the target values for blood pressure were achieved. The most frequently used antihypertensives among older patients were calcium channel blocker or ARB and ACE-inhibitors.
