Structural features of kidneys from living donors may predict death-censored graft failure in recipients

Structural Traits of Living Donor Kidneys May Predict Graft Failure

Interstitial fibrosis/tubular atrophy, larger cortical nephron size, smaller medullary volume predict failure
Considerable differences in histologic categorization are seen in sequential biopsies in deceased donor kidneys that undergo multiple procurement biopsies prior to transplantation

First-Biopsy Results for Deceased Donor Kidneys Questioned

No association seen between first-biopsy findings and posttransplant outcomes for deceased donor kidneys
In consensus statements from the American College of Radiology and the National Kidney Foundation

Recommendations Issued for CT Contrast Use in Kidney Disease

Experts say risk overstated for use of IV iodinated contrast media in patients with reduced renal function
For hemodialysis patients

Online Patient Portal Use May Up Likelihood of Kidney Transplant

Portal users more likely to have received kidney transplant at four, five years after initiating dialysis
Recipient graft survival is similar for deceased donor kidneys with acute kidney injury and kidneys without acute kidney injury

Survival Similar for Kidneys From Dead Donors With, Without AKI

Deceased donor AKI status has no association with death-censored graft failure, all-cause graft failure
Major incident cardiovascular disease events are associated with an increased risk for end-stage kidney disease

Major Cardiovascular Diseases May Up Long-Term Risk for ESKD

Risk highest for heart failure; risk for heart failure nominally higher with preserved ejection fraction
For patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest

In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Outcomes Similar for Dialysis, Nondialysis Patients

Maintenance dialysis patients have better acute survival, better odds of favorable neurological status
Adherence to the Mediterranean diet is associated with better kidney function outcomes among kidney transplant recipients

Mediterranean Diet May Preserve Function After Kidney Transplant

Risk reduced for graft failure, kidney function decline, graft loss per 2-point increase in adherence score
