Early graft function after living donor kidney transplantation predicts rejection but not outcomes.

Abstract

Poor early graft function (EGF) after deceased donor kidney transplantation (DDKT) has been intensely studied. Much less is known about poor EGF after living donor kidney transplantation (LDKT). Data were collected on 469 LDKTs performed between 1/1/97 and 12/31/01 to determine risk factors for and outcomes associated with poor EGF, defined as either… (More)
