Risk of fatal infection after kidney transplant drops in Finland
from MedPage Today
The risk of death from infection after kidney transplantation dropped by half since the 1990s in Finland, researchers reported. The mortality rate per 1,000 person-years for patients having transplants during 1990-1999 was 9.1 (95% CI 7.5-10.7). That rate fell to 4.6 (95% CI 3.5-6.1) in 2000-2012, said a research team led by Susanna Kinnunen, MD, of Kuopio University Hospital of the University of Eastern Finland.
