A total of 133 consecutive kidneys, grafted during the past 2 years, were followed by scintigraphy. Patterns of prerenal, renal, and postrenal complications were recognized. Vascular thrombosis diagnosed by photodeficiency of the transplanted kidney was diagnosed and confirmed in 10 patients. Fourteen patients having postrenal urological complications (12 leaks and 2 ureteral obstructions) were all recognized in the late phase of the scintigraphic study. The differentiation between the known parenchymatous causes of anuria was less satisfactory. As a whole, all cases were recognized in which the complication was due to causes that required surgical intervention.
