OBJECTIVES: To evaluate renal allograft efficacy and survivability in elderly donors and prolonged cold ischemia time (CIT).
METHODS: 1,402 living donor kidney transplants from 02/2008-06/2015 recorded by the National Kidney Registry were included. Transplants were classified by donor age <65, 65-69, or >69 and CIT <8, 8-16, or >16 hours. Incidence of delayed graft function (DGF), graft failure in the first post-operative year (GF1), overall graft failure (GFtot), and median nadir creatinine value were evaluated.
RESULTS: DGF occurred in 4.9% of transplants (n=69). Donor age was not associated with a significant effect on DGF (p = 0.4) (Fig 1A) . CIT >16 hours was associated with a significant increase in DGF compared to CIT <16 hours (p = 0.005) (Fig 1B) . GF1 occurred in 2% of patients transplants (n=21). Donor age did not produce a significant effect on GF1 (p = 0.99). CIT 8-16 hours was associated with an increase in GF1 compared to <8 hours and >16 hours (3.4% vs. 2.1% and 0%, p = 0.0221). GF1 did not occur in donors >69 or CIT >16 hours. Multivariate logistic regression analysis for GF1 did not find a significant effect produce by donor age or CIT (p = 0.7650 and p = 0.4381, respectively). GFtot occurred in 3% of transplants (n=43). Donor age did not significantly affect GFtot (Fig 1C) (p = 0.07). CIT 8-16 hours was associated with increased GFtot compared to CIT <8 hours and >16 hours (Fig 1D) (p = 0.0110). GFtot did not occur in donors >69 or CIT >16 hours. Cox regression analysis for GFtot did not yield a significant association with donor age or CIT (Table 1)
|Hazard Ratio||95% CI|
|Donor age (referent <65 years)|
|≥65 years old||1.80||0.71-4.59|
|Cold-ischemia time (referent < 12 hours)|
. Across all donor ages and CIT, nadir median creatinine values were 1.1-1.2.
CONCLUSIONS: Donor age does not significantly affect DGF incidence and is not associated with an increase in graft failure. CIT >8 hours increased the incidence of DGF, and CIT 8-16 hours was associated with a minor but significant increase in incidence of graft failure.
