Acute injury and age are characteristics of transplanted tissue that influence many aspects of the course of a renal allograft. The influence of donor tissue characteristics on outcomes can be analyzed by studying pairing, the extent to which two kidneys retrieved from the same cadaver donor manifest similar outcomes. Pairing studies help to define the relative role of donor-related factors (among pairs) versus non-donor factors (within pairs). This study analyzed graft survival for 220 pairs… CONTINUE READING
