Summary of "Assessing the discrimination of the Kidney Donor Risk Index/Kidney Donor Profile Index scores for allograft failure and estimated glomerular filtration rate in Ireland's National Kidney Transplant Programme."

The Kidney Donor Risk Index (KDRI)/Kidney Donor Profile Index (KDPI) is relied upon for donor organ allocation in the USA, based on its association with graft failure in time-to-event models. However, the KDRI/KDPI has not been extensively evaluated in terms of predictive metrics for graft failure and allograft estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) outside of the USA.

A donor risk index for graft loss in pediatric living donor kidney transplantation.

Pediatric kidney transplant (KT) candidates often have multiple potential living donors (LD); no evidence-based tool exists to compare potential LD, or to decide between marginal LD vs deceased donor ...

Why do not all living kidney donor candidates proceed to donation?

There are national and international guidelines for donor workup and acceptance criteria of potential living kidney donor candidates (LKDC), but there is significant variation in clinical practice. We...

Small Split Pediatric Kidneys to Expand the Donor Pool: An analysis of Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) Data.

Increased use of pediatric deceased donor kidneys could enlarge the deceased donor kidney pool. Kidney transplant outcomes from small pediatric donors were compared with those from ideal kidney (IK) a...

Can disparity in access to living-donor kidney transplants between ethnic groups be mitigated?

In their article, based on a single-centre retrospective cohort study at the Toronto General Hospital (Canada), Vedadi and colleagues present two main findings. In a detailed and thorough statistical ...

Three-year Follow Up of Aviremic Hepatitis C-Positive Kidneys.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A complication of kidney diseases characterized by cell death involving KIDNEY PAPILLA in the KIDNEY MEDULLA. Damages to this area may hinder the kidney to concentrate urine resulting in POLYURIA. Sloughed off necrotic tissue may block KIDNEY PELVIS or URETER. Necrosis of multiple renal papillae can lead to KIDNEY FAILURE.

The outer zone of the KIDNEY, beneath the capsule, consisting of KIDNEY GLOMERULUS; KIDNEY TUBULES, DISTAL; and KIDNEY TUBULES, PROXIMAL.

Long convoluted tubules in the nephrons. They collect filtrate from blood passing through the KIDNEY GLOMERULUS and process this filtrate into URINE. Each renal tubule consists of a BOWMAN CAPSULE; PROXIMAL KIDNEY TUBULE; LOOP OF HENLE; DISTAL KIDNEY TUBULE; and KIDNEY COLLECTING DUCT leading to the central cavity of the kidney (KIDNEY PELVIS) that connects to the URETER.

Stones in the KIDNEY, usually formed in the urine-collecting area of the kidney (KIDNEY PELVIS). Their sizes vary and most contains CALCIUM OXALATE.

A mismatch between donor and recipient blood. Antibodies present in the recipient's serum are directed against antigens in the donor product. Such a mismatch may result in a transfusion reaction in which, for example, donor blood is hemolyzed. (From Saunders Dictionary & Encyclopedia of Laboratory Medicine and Technology, 1984)
