Abnormal terminal serum creatinine of donors had been reported as the second frequent causes of kidney refusal. More and more studies have shown a comparable outcome of kidney transplantation from deceased donors with acute kidney injury (AKI) in the first year. However, no long-term outcome of these graft kidney is reported.
Materials and Methods:
We retrospectively reviewed 84 consecutive kidney transplants from 57 standard criteria donors. All recipients were classified into two groups according to donor serum creatinine before kidney procurement. The donor and recipient characteristics and graft outcomes were compared.
Out of 84 kidney transplants, 56 recipients were in Non-AKI group, and 28 recipients were in AKI group. The mean terminal creatinine were 1.09 and 2.62 mg/dL in Non-AKI and AKI groups, respectively. The short-term graft outcomes, including primary non-function rate, delayed graft function rate, and acute rejection rate was compatible. The long-term renal function, graft survival and overall survival over the first 7 years had no statistic difference.
Our study reveals AKI before procurement had compatible long-term graft outcomes. The results expand donor pools and encourage transplant centers to use these marginal donors.
