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.

Impact of cadaveric renal transplantation on survival in patients listed for transplantation.

TLDR
Despite an initial higher risk of death, long-term survival for patients who undergo transplantation is significantly better compared with patients who are listed but remain on dialysis.

Association of Kidney Transplantation with Survival in Patients with Long Dialysis Exposure.

TLDR
Transplantation is associated with better survival in patients who were actively waitlisted with dialysis exposure ≥10 years, and this benefit was observed in a variety of patient subgroups, including patients ≥65 years of age and patients with diabetes.

Survival of recipients of cadaveric kidney transplants compared with those receiving dialysis treatment in Australia and New Zealand, 1991-2001.

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.

Impact of dialysis modality on survival after kidney transplant failure.

  • Medicine, Biology
    Clinical journal of the American Society of Nephrology : CJASN
  • 2011
TLDR
Differences in both patient characteristics and predialysis management between patients returning to DAGL and transplant-naive incident dialysis patients may be responsible for the absence of an early survival advantage with the use of peritoneal dialysis in D AGL patients.

Benefit of kidney transplantation beyond 70 years of age

  • K. HeldalA. Hartmann K. Midtvedt
  • Medicine, Political Science
    Nephrology, dialysis, transplantation : official publication of the European Dialysis and Transplant Association - European Renal Association
  • 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.

Kidney transplantation in the elderly: a decision analysis.

TLDR
Prolonged waiting times dramatically decrease the clinical benefits and economic attractiveness of transplantation, suggesting that living donor transplantation may be of particular benefit in this population of older patients with renal failure.

Survival Advantage of Pediatric Recipients of a First Kidney Transplant Among Children Awaiting Kidney Transplantation

  • D. GillenC. Stehman-Breen C. Wong
  • Medicine
    American journal of transplantation : official journal of the American Society of Transplantation and the American Society of Transplant Surgeons
  • 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.

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.

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.

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.

The quality of life of patients with end-stage renal disease.

TLDR
The quality of life of transplant recipients compared well with that of the general population, but despite favorable subjective assessments, patients undergoing dialysis did not work or function at the same level as people in the generalpopulation.
