Delayed kidney transplantation in combined liver-kidney transplantation, compared with the simultaneous approach, had better survival rates and overall outcomes, especially among cases with a lower kidney donor profile index, researchers reported in a recently published study. “It is well known that peri-operative kidney dysfunction is a well-established risk factor for recipient mortality in patients undergoing [liver transplantation],” Burcin Ekser, MD, PhD, from the Indiana University School of Medicine, and colleagues wrote.
