Pre-transplant renal functional reserve and renal function after lung transplantation
from The Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation
Post-lung transplantation progressive chronic kidney disease is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Comorbidities and cotreatments, and post-LTx medical complications, including acute kidney injury, are associated with an increased risk for subsequent CKD development. However, among the several risk factors for post-LTx CKD development, pre-transplant renal function plays a key role.
