Comparison of Estimating Equations for the Prediction of Glomerular Filtration Rate in Kidney Donors before and after Kidney Donation

Abstract

The aim of this study is to investigate the usefulness of the GFR-estimating equations to predict renal function in kidney donors before and after transplantation. We compared the performance of 24-hour-urine-based creatinine clearance (24 hr urine-CrCl), the Cockcroft-Gault formula (eGFRCG), the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease equation (eGFRMDRD… (More)
