INTRODUCTION The aim was to determine the impact of donor glomerulosclerosis on allograft outcome. METHODS The percentage of glomerular sclerosis (%GS) was calculated in protocol biopsies taken at engraftment. Clinical variables were obtained from the Welsh Transplantation Research Group (WTRG) database. RESULTS Of 210 allografts, 129 showed %GS=0, but 81 kidneys showed %GS between 1 and 60. Patients with %GS=0 had the highest glomerular filtration rate (GFR) at 1 year (62.0 mL/min) and the… CONTINUE READING
