Recent trends in kidney transplant survival

What are the most recent trends in kidney transplant survival?

• The 2015 OPTN/SRTR report showed that though living donor transplants had better survival than deceased donor transplants, both have continued improvement in their 1, 3, 5, and 10 years death-censored graft survival regardless of donation type.

• The three groups among deceased donor kidney transplants with the lowest 5-year graft survival were those with primary kidney failure from diabetes (70.4%) or hypertension (71.8%), and in patients who received an organ with a KDPI >85% (57.6%, KDPI >85%; 73.3%, KDPI 35% to 85%).

• There was no significant difference in the 5-year graft survival between kidneys donated after brain death or cardiac death.

• Living donor transplant recipients >65 years of age at the time of transplant had the lowest 5-year graft survival compared to other age groups.
