Introduction: The aim of this study was comparing clinical outcomes of kidney transplantation between aged over 60 years and younger recipients
Methods: From 1993 to 2013, kidney transplantations performed in Asan medical center were retrospectively reviewed. Death censored graft survival and standardized mortality ratios (SMR) were analyzed. Risk factors of graft failures at 10 years after transplantation were assessed by binary logistic regression.
Results: In living donor kidney transplantation, 10 year death censored graft survival of the young age group was 87.5% and that of the geriatric group was 87.2% (log rank p=0.215). In deceased donor kidney transplantation, 10 year death censored graft survival of the young age group was 79% and that of the geriatric group was 90.9% (log rank p=0.119). SMRs of geriatric group were not inferior to younger recipients.
|Age group||N||Observed number of death||Expected number of death||SMR∗||95%CI†|
|Univariate analysis||Multivariate analysis|
|P-value||Hazard ratio||95% CI†||P-value||Hazard ratio||95% CI†|
|Time of transplantation (2004-2013)||< 0.001||0.22||0.13-038||<0.001||0.21||0.13-0.34|
|HLA DR mismatch||0.890||0.95||0.43-2.08|
|Dialysis before transplantation||0.380||2.09||0.40-10.83|
Conclusion: Kidney transplantation in geriatric population can be encouraged.
