A BSTRACT Background The extent to which renal allotransplantation — as compared with long-term dialysis — improves survival among patients with end-stage renal disease is controversial, because those selected for transplantation may have a lower base-line risk of death. Methods In an attempt to distinguish the effects of patient selection from those of transplantation itself, we conducted a longitudinal study of mortality in 228,552 patients who were receiving long-term dialysis for end-stage…

A comparative analysis of survival of patients on dialysis and after kidney transplantation
TLDR
Transplant recipients had a higher risk of death initially, but a better long-term survival, and time to death risk equilibration was longer compared with other studies, which could be explained by better survival rates in the waiting-list cohort.
Survival of recipients of cadaveric kidney transplants compared with those receiving dialysis treatment in Australia and New Zealand, 1991-2001.

  • 2002
TLDR
As well as improved quality of life, cadaveric renal transplantation in Australia and New Zealand is associated with a survival advantage compared with those remaining on the waiting list.
Association of kidney transplantation with mortality on hemodialysis after graft failure
TLDR
This retrospective, single-country study suggested that a cardiovascular mortality risk of transplant-failure patients could be significantly lower than that of transplants-naïve patients, while there might be a trend toward a higher infection-related mortality risk in transplant- Failure patients.
Benefit of kidney transplantation beyond 70 years of age

  • 2010
TLDR
Survival after kidney transplantation in patients over 70 years has improved during the last decade and offers a survival advantage over dialysis treatment, and the experience supports the use of kidney transplants in this age group if an increased early post-operative risk is accepted.
Renal Transplantation in Elderly Patients Older Than 70 Years of Age: Results From the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients
TLDR
Transplantation offers a significant reduction in mortality compared with dialysis in the wait-listed elderly population with end-stage renal disease in the United States.
Survival Advantage of Pediatric Recipients of a First Kidney Transplant Among Children Awaiting Kidney Transplantation

  • 2008
TLDR
Compared to children who remain on the kidney transplant waiting list, those who receive a transplant have a long‐term survival advantage, and the results of the analysis should be interpreted conservatively.
Survival Benefit From Kidney Transplantation Using Kidneys From Deceased Donors Aged ≥75 Years: A Time‐Dependent Analysis
TLDR
Although kidney transplantation from elderly deceased donors is associated with reduced graft survival, transplanted patients have lower mortality than those remaining on dialysis, and projected years of life since placement on the waiting list was almost twofold higher for transplants patients.
Deceased-donor characteristics and the survival benefit of kidney transplantation.
TLDR
ECD kidney transplants should be offered principally to candidates older than 40 years in OPOs with long waiting times, and candidates should be counseled that ECD survival benefit is observed only for patients with diabetes.
Mortality after Renal Allograft Failure and Return to Dialysis
TLDR
Excess mortality risk observed in patients starting dialysis after KAF is multifactorial, including nutritional issues and vascular access, andequate preparation of patients with failing kidney transplants prior to resuming dialysis may improve outcomes.
Deceased donor transplantation in the elderly--are we creating false hope?
TLDR
The likelihood of being listed for transplant falls with increasing age at the time of starting RRT and the probability of older patients actually receiving a transplant is much lower than for younger patients, with only 8% of listed patients aged 65-74 being transplanted within 5 years.

Comparison of survival probabilities for dialysis patients vs cadaveric renal transplant recipients.
TLDR
The overall mortality risk following renal transplantation was initially increased, but there was a long-term survival benefit compared with similar patients on dialysis.
Survival experience among elderly end-stage renal disease patients. A controlled comparison of transplantation and dialysis.
TLDR
The results support the potential advantage of transplantation among the elderly, and may have important implications for renal care in this age group.
Comparative mortality risks of chronic dialysis and cadaveric transplantation in black end-stage renal disease patients.
TLDR
Cadaveric transplantation in black ESRD patients is associated with a high risk of mortality in the early period after transplantation, and beyond 1 year, black transplant recipients have a substantial survival advantage over corresponding dialysis patients on the waiting list.
Patient survival after renal transplantation: I. The impact of dialysis pre-transplant.
TLDR
Increased time on dialysis prior to renal transplantation is associated with decreased survival of transplant recipients, and increases the prevalence of both left ventricular hypertrophy and cardiomegaly.
Patient survival after renal transplantation; more than 25 years follow-up.
TLDR
Time-related changes in patient management were responsible for improved patient survival in the first year after transplantation during the study period, and there was no effect of the type of pretransplantation dialysis or the duration of pretranplantation haemodialysis on post-transplantation mortality.
Impact of renal cadaveric transplantation on survival in end-stage renal failure: evidence for reduced mortality risk compared with hemodialysis during long-term follow-up.
TLDR
Patients receiving a renal cadaveric transplantation have a substantial survival advantage over corresponding end-stage renal disease patients on the waiting list even in the setting of a single transplantation center where mortality on regular dialysis therapy was comparatively low.
Access to kidney transplantation. Has the United States eliminated income and racial differences?
TLDR
White, male, young, nondiabetic, high-income patients treated in smaller units are more likely to receive a cadaver transplant under Medicare than are other kidney patients and profit status of the dialysis unit was not found to be correlated to access to transplantation.
Race and socioeconomic factors influencing early placement on the kidney transplant waiting list.
TLDR
It is concluded that racial and ethnic minorities, those less well educated, and those with fewer financial resources are less likely than their counterparts to be listed for renal transplantation before dialysis.
A study of the quality of life and cost-utility of renal transplantation.
TLDR
It is concluded that renal transplantation was more effective and less costly than dialysis in all subgroups of patients examined, including patients older than 60 and diabetics.
The impact of comorbid and sociodemographic factors on access to renal transplantation.
TLDR
Findings indicate that sociodemographics have strong independent effects on access to transplantation that cannot be explained away as "surrogate" effects related to comorbid factors.
