Enhancement of renal allograft function and survival in an era where expanded criteria donors are increasingly used requires validated selection criteria. The goal of this retrospective study was to evaluate the significance of pretransplant donor and allograft parameters to identify risk factors that can be used in a model to predict 1-year allograft outcomes. Donor demographic factors, donor type, and allograft parameters such as biopsy results and machine-measured renal resistance were… CONTINUE READING
