Donor age, cold ischemia time show little impact on delayed graft function post-kidney transplant
Kidneys from older donors showed no significant association with increased risk for delayed graft function, according to this study. In addition, the research suggested that the increased risk for delayed graft function with longer cold ischemia time was not more pronounced with kidneys from older donors or with higher kidney donor profile index scores (ie, marginal kidneys).
