Previous single-center studies of post-donation estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in living kidney donors were limited by small sample size and lack of generalizability. The goal of our study is to investigate the association between preoperative donor characteristics and post-donation eGFR using national SRTR data.
METHODS: We studied eGFR in the 2 years post-donation in 35,886 donors between 2006-2015. We modeled post-donation eGFR as % of preoperative eGFR initial decline and then recovery. We used multilevel mixed-effects linear regression to account for multiple post-donation eGFR measurements per donor.
RESULTS: The median (IQR) initial 6-month decline was 34.6 (26.5-41.2)%. In an adjusted model, higher age, BMI, systolic blood pressure (SBP), educational level, African-Americans (AA), and males were associated with sharper declines (all p<0.01). Following the initial drop, % eGFR recovery increased per year by 1.952.142.32% for donors aged 18-39, and 1.211.622.03% for donors aged 60+ (age/time interaction p<0.001). AA were associated with 1.871.451.03% decrease, and Hispanics were associated with 1.231.612.00% increase in % eGFR recovery compared to Whites, respectively (all p<0.001). Higher BMI, SBP, educational level, smoking, and males were associated with lower % eGFR recovery (all p<0.05).
CONCLUSION: Post-donation eGFR decline and recovery varies based on donor characteristics. Younger donors have more rapid short-term post-donation eGFR recovery.
