Renal transplantation linked with reduced mortality in end-stage disease due to GPA
Renal transplantation reduced the mortality risk compared with remaining on a waitlist among patients with end-stage renal disease due to granulomatosis with polyangiitis, according to findings presented at the American College of Rheumatology Annual Meeting. Zachary S. Wallace, MD, suggested that previous data have not investigated whether transplantation or remaining waitlisted for transplantation carries the most optimal survival benefit among patients with end-stage renal disease due to granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA).
