BACKGROUND After the first year after kidney transplantation, 3% to 5% of grafts fail each year but detailed studies of how grafts progress to failure are lacking. This study aimed to analyze the functional stability of kidney transplants between 1 and 5 years after transplantation and to identify initially well-functioning grafts with progressive decline in allograft function. METHODS The study included 788 adult conventional kidney transplants performed at the Mayo Clinic Rochester between… CONTINUE READING
