We assessed the relationship between living donor (LD) age and kidney survival in 1063 adults transplanted between 1980 and 2007. Increasing LD age was associated with lower kidney function (GFR) before and after transplantation and loss of GFR beyond 1 year. Increasing LD age was also associated with low-moderate proteinuria posttransplant (151-1500 mg/day, p < 0.0001). By univariate analysis, reduced graft survival related to lower GFR at 1 year [HR = 0.925 (0.906-0.944), p < 0.0001… CONTINUE READING
