Despite the persistent donor shortage, donor kidneys with an acute kidney injury are declined. The aim of this study to determine the difference in biopsy findings of AKI kidneys at 1 year post transplant.
We included KTx from DD at our center between 2008 and 9/2017. We discard kidneys with 10% cortical necrosis or more than mild chronic changes on pre-implantation biopsy. We extracted data from DonorNet in order to classify the severity of AKI using the AKIN staging system (stage 0-3). The primary outcome is difference in biopsy findings at 1 year post transplant in different AKIN stages.
We were able to determine the AKIN stage in 1193 (83.7%) of the DD KTx during this period. 593 (49.7%) were AKIN stage 2-3. The AKIN 2-3 group was more likely diabetic and on dialysis pre KTx. AKIN 2-3 group donors were younger, more likely male and black race and had lower KDPI. Reperfusion biopsies (RBx) were available in 65.8% of the AKIN 2-3 group and 62.3% in the AKIN 0-1 group.The chronic changes were not higher on the 1 year biopsy in the AKIN 2-3 group.(e.g., %ci> 0 17.3 vs. 34.2, p=0.02).
|Chronic Banff Score||AKIN2-3 (n=365)||AKIN 0-1(n=345)||P|
|% glomerular sclerosis||4.58(8.20)||6.37( 10.||0.03|
KTx from DD with AKIN stage 2-3 is not associated with more chronic changes on 1 year protocol biopsy. Carefully selected kidneys from DD with severe AKI are a good option for patients listed for kidney transplantation.
