Donor positive blood culture is associated with delayed graft function in kidney transplant recipients: a propensity score analysis of the UNOS database

from Clinical Tranplantation (login required)

The effect of blood culture positive donor (BCPD) on delayed graft function (DGF) in kidney transplant recipients has not been well established. We retrieved data from the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) registry on all adults who underwent primary, single organ deceased-donor kidney transplantation in US between 2008 and 2013. Patients were classified in two cohorts: the BCPD cohort and the non-BCPD cohort. We used propensity scores for 1:1 matching of BCPD and non-BCPD cohorts. DGF, graft and patient survival at one yr were compared between cohorts using multivariable logistic and Cox regression models. DGF was defined as requiring dialysis within the first week post-transplant. more
