Impact of cold ischemia time on graft survival among ECD transplant recipients: A paired kidney analysis
from American Journal of Transplantation (paid subscription required)
Delays in expanded criteria donor (ECD) kidney placement increases cold ischemia times (CIT) potentially leading to discard. The effect of increased CIT on ECD kidney transplant outcomes is unknown. We evaluated paired ECD kidneys (derived from the same donor transplanted to different recipients) from the SRTR registry transplanted between 1995 and 2009 (n = 17 514).
