  • The survival benefit of simultaneous liver‐kidney transplantation (SLKT) over liver transplantation alone (LTA) is unclear from the current literature. Additionally, the role of donor kidney quality, measured by the kidney donor risk index (KDRI), in survival benefit of SLKT is not studied. We compared survival benefit after SLKT and LTA among recipients with similar pretransplant renal dysfunction using novel methodology, specifically with respect to survival probability and area under the… CONTINUE READING
