Introduction: The aim of the study is to evaluate patient and kidney allograft survivals in primary, repeat, and kidney after nonrenal organ transplantation using national data reported to United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS).
Patients and Methods: We retrospectively studied adult patients who received kidney transplants between January 2000 and December 2014. Given the inherent instability of comparing a small subgroup with a very large subgroup, a 10% cohort of primary kidney transplants was randomly selected from UNOS database and used as a comparison group. We excluded patients who received kidney and other solid organ transplant simultaneously and patients with more than 2 organ transplants. Survival time for each patient was stratified into the following groups[mdash]group A (comparison group): recipients of primary kidney transplant (21,076 patients), group B: recipients of repeat kidney transplant (4,428 patients), and group C: recipients of kidney transplants performed after a previous non renal transplant (liver, heart, and lung) (1,558 patients). We compared survivals using Kaplan-Meier curves.
Results: The median graft survival time of the kidney transplants was 11.3 years for group A, 11.0 years in group B and 8.1 years for group C (P < 0.001). The 1, 5, and 10 years graft survival was 94%, 78% and 55% in group A, 92%, 74% and 55% in group B, and 92%, 68% and 40% in group C, respectively. The 1, 5, and 10 years patient survival was 97%, 85% and 63% in group A, 97%, 86% and 64% in group B, and 93%, 71% and 42% in group C, respectively. Graft and patient survivals in group C were significantly lower than group A and B (P < 0.001 for both) [Figure 1 and 2].
