Kidney transplantation from small pediatric donors: does recipient body mass index matter?
Summary of "Kidney transplantation from small pediatric donors: does recipient body mass index matter?"
BACKGROUND.: The influence of recipient body mass index (BMI) on pediatric-donor kidney transplant outcomes is unclear. We aimed to determine graft survival and functional outcomes of pediatric-donor kidneys compared with adult kidneys stratified by recipient BMI group. METHODS.: Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients data for recipients from 1996 to 2010 were reviewed. Donors were categorized by transplant type, pediatric single kidney transplant (SKT, n=3712), en bloc kidney transplant (EBK, n=1517), or adult standard criteria donor (SCD, n=66,741). Recipients were stratified by BMI tertiles (<24, 24-29, and >29 kg/m). RESULTS.: SKT and EBK from donors ≤40 kg conferred similar risks of adjusted death-censored graft survival relative to SCDs regardless of recipient BMI except for EBK transplants in recipients with BMI <24 where the effect was protective (adjusted hazard ratio [aHR] 0.71, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.56-0.94). SKT from donors ≤20 kg conferred worse death-censored graft survival in recipients with BMI <24 (aHR 1.3, 95% CI 1.0-1.6) and BMI >29 (aHR 1.5, 95% CI 1.1-2.0); however, most of the risk appeared early, and the effect was abrogated with reanalysis conditional on 1-year graft survival. Compared with SCDs, 1-year glomerular filtration rates of SKT from donors ≤20 kg were significantly higher when transplanted into recipients with BMI <24 (P<0.01) and similar in the other BMI groups. CONCLUSION.: Increasing recipient BMI is not a clear risk factor for outcomes or graft function after transplantation with small pediatric-donor kidneys.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Preparative treatment of transplant recipient with various conditioning regimens including radiation, immune sera, chemotherapy, and/or immunosuppressive agents, prior to transplantation. Transplantation conditioning is very common before bone marrow transplantation.
Transplantation of tissue typical of one area to a different recipient site. The tissue may be autologous, heterologous, or homologous.
Kidney Failure, Chronic
The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.
The transference of a kidney from one human or animal to another.
Tissue And Organ Procurement
The administrative procedures involved with acquiring TISSUES or organs for TRANSPLANTATION through various programs, systems, or organizations. These procedures include obtaining consent from TISSUE DONORS and arranging for transportation of donated tissues and organs, after TISSUE HARVESTING, to HOSPITALS for processing and transplantation.
BACKGROUND.: En bloc kidneys from pediatric donors have been considered suboptimal for transplantation to adult recipients and their outcomes have rarely been compared with living donor kidney transpl...
Kidneys from donors ≤5 yr of age represent a controversial issue. The purpose of this study was to compare the transplant outcomes as single and single/en bloc grafts into pediatric and adult KT re...
To reduce the growing waiting list for kidney transplantation, we explored the limits of kidney transplantation from donors after cardiac death by liberally accepting marginal donor kidneys for transp...
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Age and body mass index (BMI) of kidney donors and recipients affect kidney allograft outcomes. Moreover, while deceased donor and recipient body size mismatch have been rep...
There is a continuing debate about the techniques of kidney transplantation from small donors because of the high vascular thromboses and ureteric leak rates. Transplantation of en-bloc pediatric kidn...
On a yearly basis there are approximately 12,000 kidney transplants in the United States. Presently there are approximately 40,000 patients awaiting a transplant with only 5,000 available...
This study will evaluate the differences between open surgical kidney donation and laparoscopic kidney donation on kidney donors and recipients. Both procedures are standard surgeries used...
The purpose of this trial is to evaluate a CMV vaccine given to related donor/recipient pairs (donors prior to peripheral blood stem cell donation and CMV-seropositive recipients just befo...
Kidney transplantation, is the preferred treatment option of end stage renal disease. Compared to dialysis, patients who receive kidneys have a 70% reduction in death, a dramatically impr...
