The 2012 Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) guidelines on chronic kidney disease (CKD) introduced risk classes for adverse outcome based on estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and albuminuria categories (low—LR, moderately—MR, high—HR, very high risk—VHR). We aimed to investigate if such risk stratification is suitable in kidney transplant (KTx) recipients. This single-center prospective study enrolled 231 prevalent KTx recipients [36 (34–48) years, 62 % male, eGFR 53.7… CONTINUE READING
