*Purpose: End-stage renal disease (ESRD) frequently develops after nonrenal solid-organ transplantation, increasing the number of patients with a prior heart, liver or lung transplant on the kidney transplant waiting list. The impact of delayed graft function (DGF) in kidney after solid-organ transplantation (KASOT) is unknown. This study details survival outcomes associated with DGF in KASOT and defines modifiable risk factors with the aim to prevent development of DGF.
*Methods: The SRTR database was queried for adult recipients who underwent kidney after heart (KAHT), liver (KALiT) and lung transplantation (KALuT) from 2000 to 2017. We compared patient and death-censored graft survival using Kaplan-Meier analysis, and determined the risk factors for DGF with multivariate logistic regression.
*Results: There were 1972 KASOT recipients (29% KAHT, 65% KALiT, 6% KALuT) during the study period, 21% of which developed DGF. DGF reduced patient survival in KAHT (p<0.01) and KALiT (p=0.02), but not KALuT (p=0.49)(please refer to Table 1). Similarly, DGF reduced graft survival in KAHT, KALiT and KALuT when compared to non-DGF KAHT (p<0.01), KALiT (p<0.01) and KALuT (p<0.01), respectively. Major risk factors associated with DGF include donor cause of death (COD), donation after circulatory death (DCD), terminal serum creatinine, and years on dialysis (Table 2 and Table 3). KAHT recipients were more likely to develop DGF, and cold machine perfusion reduced the risk of DGF.
*Conclusions: : DGF negatively affects patient and graft survival in KASOT. Reduction of time on dialysis, selection of suitable donor-recipient pairs and cold machine perfusion could help minimize the risk of DGF, and improve both patient and graft survival.
