Kidney Accelerated Placement Project aims to improve transfer of hard-to-place kidneys
from By Lynn Hetzler
The Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) launched the Kidney Accelerated Placement Project (KAPP) last year. The goal of the project is to assess whether speeding up the placement of hard-to-place kidneys could increase utilization of these organs. "Hard-to-place" kidneys have a kidney donor profile index (KDPI) of 80 or higher and are offered to all transplant programs at both the local and regional level.
