In a study, significantly worse allograft survival, for example, was found for transplanted kidneys from elderly deceased donors with AKI.
Kidney transplant recipients with a failing graft were nearly twice as likely as non-recipients to be hospitalized.
In a study, a 1 g/dL reduction in hemoglobin was associated with a significant 1.8-fold increase in graft failure.
In a study, missing 1 or more dialysis sessions in the month prior to kidney transplantation correlated with delayed graft function and longer hospitalization.
