Resumen

PEREZ RODRIGUEZ, Alexis et al. Alterations of the upper digestive tract and helicobacter pylori infection in 23 kidney transplant recipients. Rev cubana med [online]. 2004, vol.43, n.5-6. ISSN 0034-7523.

A study was conducted among 23 patients that had received kidney transplants at the National Institute of Nephrology, Cuba. Endoscopy with urease test for diagnosis of gastroduodenal alterations and Helicobacter pylori (HP) infection was performed during the first three months after transplantation. It was found that the most frequent alterations were hiatus hernia, chronic gastritis and duodenal ulcer. Of the total, 8 patients had Helicobacter pylori infection, accounting for 34.7 % associated more frequently with gastritis, acute duodenitis and duodenal ulcer. 4 patients were treated for having HP infection associated with duodenal ulcer and they were all cured. They did not have any relapses either of the infection, or of the ulcer, six months after concluding the treatment.

Palabras clave : Kidney transplant patient; gastroduodenal alterations in the kidney transplant patient; Helicobacter pylori infection.
