Pulsatile machine perfusion (PMP) has been shown to reduce delayed graft function (DGF) in expanded criteria donor (ECD) kidneys. Here, we investigate whether there is a cost benefit associated with PMP utilization in ECD kidney transplants. We analyzed United States Renal Data System (USRDS) data describing Medicare-insured ECD kidney transplant recipients in 1995-2004 (N = 5840). We examined total Medicare payments for transplant hospitalization and annually for 3 years posttransplant… CONTINUE READING
