Background: We aimed to investigate the clinical outcomes of kidney transplant recipients 65 years and older.
Methods: Between 1/2009 and 12/2014, 687 patients underwent a kidney transplantation at our institution. Of those, 132 were older than 65.
Results: There was no difference between the 2 groups in terms of gender, race, thymoglobulin induction, rates of acute rejection, BK and CMV viremia. Older recipients were more likely to receive a deceased donor transplant, and donors were of higher KPDI. Older recipients had higher rates of malignancy. Interestingly, we did not observe a difference in graft and patient survival between the 2 groups.
Conclusion: Despite a higher rate of malignancy, well selected older transplant recipients have similar patient survival and graft survival rates when compared to younger recipients.
