Objective: This study was conducted to review the sociodemographic characteristics of kidney transplant patients and the changes in preoperative and postoperative laboratory findings. Material and Methods: This is a retrospective study including 130 patients who underwent kidney transplantation between January 2015 and June 2019. This research was conducted at the Turgut Özal Medical Center Organ Transplant Hospital between August and December 2019 in the form of a four-month file archive review. File archive was used to access the data. The demographic characteristics of these patients, clinical and laboratory findings, donor characteristics, pre-transplant chronic diseases, pre-transplant dialysis duration and dialysis types were retrospectively analyzed to evaluate post-transplant infection and survival. Results: In the study, it was determined that patient survival rates were higher in transplants from a cadaver donor compared to transplants from a living donor. When the values before and after the transplantation were compared, it was found that the difference between the mean values of albumin, calcium, leukocytes, hemoglobin, hematocrit, platelets and international normalized ratio before and after transplantation was statistically significant. Conclusion: In this patient group, it may be suggested to carry out studies on nursing that provide sustainable, professional, holistic, evidence-based care and raise awareness, and to add the study findings to nursing practices in order to achieve the expected goals in improving the quality of life and survival.
