Study Purpose: Accurate pre-donation renal function estimation is important to minimize the risk of future severe renal function impairment in living kidney donors. Recent studies focused on pre-donation estimated GFR (eGFR) as a predictor of measured GFR (mGFR), but did not account for the effect of nephrectomy. Therefore, in this study, we aimed to identify the predictive value of pre-donation eGFR for post-donation mGFR.
Methods: In 873 living kidney donors, eGFR (CKD-EPI formula) and mGFR (125I-iothalamate) were measured before and 3 months after donation. Bayesian statistics were used to calculate for different pre-donation eGFR categories the probability of having a post-donation mGFR above the thresholds 40, 45, 50, 55 and 60 mL/min/1.73m2.
Results: Mean donor age was 51.6±1and 48% were male. Mean pre-donation eGFR was 88±14 mL/min/1.73m2 and mean pre-donation mGFR/BSA was 102±16 ml/min/1.73m2 respectively. Mean post-donation mGFR/BSA was 65±12 ml/min/1.73m2. In order to achieve a post-donation eGFR >40ml/min/1.73m2 with a chance of 95%, a pre-donation eGFR >68.8 ml/min/1.73m2 was necessary. This was present in 91% of donors. A pre-donation eGFR>94.2 mL/min/1.73m2 was needed to reach a post-donation mGFR>50 mL/min/1.73m2 with a probability of 95%. This was present in 33% of the donors.
Conclusion: This study shows how pre-donation eGFR could be used to identify donors that do not need mGFR measurements to be accepted for living kidney donation.
