Associations of pre-transplant anemia management with post-transplant delayed graft function in kidney transplant recipients.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Delayed graft function (DGF) complicates kidney allograft outcomes in the immediate post-transplantation period. We hypothesized that in hemodialysis patients more severe anemia, iron deficiency, the requirement for higher doses of erythropoietin-stimulating agents (ESA), or blood transfusions prior to transplantation are associated with higher… (More)
