We wait too long to refer patients for transplantation
from Seminars in Dialysis
Late referral of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) for evaluation of kidney transplantation is common. Even though renal transplantation offers a clear survival benefit to patients with advanced CKD and ESRD and should be considered the renal replacement therapy of choice, numerous barriers to early renal transplant referral have been observed.
