Background:CT volumes have good correlation with nuclear imaging to measure split renal function. Kidney volume can be a surrogate marker for nephron mass. Our objectives were to study the correlations of remaining kidney volume (aPKV) with pre-donation and 2 year functional gain post donation eGFR measurements (CKD-EPI).
Methods: We reviewed the donor radiological and pre and post- donation data from 2008 to 2012. 208 donors (63.9% F; mean age 40.6±10.5; 92.3% Whites). Remaining Kidney (RK)eGFR was calculated by measuring split volume difference between donated and remaining kidney. Volumes were adjusted to BSA.
Results: Pre-donation, the global eGFR was 99.3+/-16.3 ml/min with a mean aPKV of 181.7±32.9ml. The mean RK-eGFR at the time of donation was 50.7±8.7. The RK-EGFR was positively correlated with its volume (r=0.45;p<0.001). The RK-EGFR /volume had a mean of 0.28±0.05 ml/min per cm3.2 years after donation the mean RK-eGFR had increased to 65.7±16 ml/min which was 33.7±11.8% (-7.7 to 58.1) lower than the initial mean global eGFR. On average, the 2 year functional gain of the remaining kidney was 15.1±12.8 ml/min (-9.6 to 56.3) or 30.0% ±23.6% (-18 to 109) compared to initial RK-EGFR.
In univariate analysis functional gain in eGFR was positively associated with global pre-donation EGFR (r=0.26), adjusted PKV (r=0.284), global kidney volume (r=0.2), time of donation RK-EGFR (r=0.169), and negatively associated with age (r=-0.366). There was no association with BSA or BMI or RK-EGFR/vol.
There was 10.7±9.3 ml mean functional gain in the lowest tertile aPKV group which was significantly lower (p=0.006) than the mean functional gain (16.1±12.6 ml/min) in the middle tertile aPKV group. However there was no statistical difference between the middle and highest aPKV groups (18.7±14.5; p=0.269).
Conclusion: We here show that volume based RK-eGFR is a useful measure of predicting and correlating functional gain. Careful selection by utilizing such calculations can aid selecting the laterality of the kidney as well as predicting long-term donor remaining renal function.
