Baseline donor chronic renal injury confers the same transplant survival disadvantage for DCD and DBD kidneys

from American Journal of Transplantation (login required)

Histological assessment of baseline chronic kidney injury may discriminate kidneys that are suitable for transplantation, but has not been validated for appraisal of donation after circulatory death (DCD) kidneys. 'Time-zero' biopsies for 371 consecutive, solitary, deceased-donor kidneys transplanted at our center between 2006 and 2010 (65.5 percent DCD, 34.5 percent donation after brain death [DBD]) were reviewed and baseline chronic degenerative injury scored using Remuzzi's classification. more
