*Purpose: Unicenter Brazilian studies reported high incidences (50-70%) of delayed graft function (DGF). This is a multicenter Brazilian study aimed to evaluate the incidence, the risk factors and the impact of DGF in our peculiar scenario.
*Methods: Multicenter, retrospective cohort including deceased donor kidney transplants (KT) performed in 18 Brazilian centers between Jan/14-Dec/15 (n=4,156). 1-year outcomes were analyzed. DGF was defined as the need for dialysis in the first week after KT.
*Results: 27% of donors were expanded criteria, with KDPI 63±23%. Donor final creatinine (Crf) was 1.8±1.5mg/dL (Crf>1.5mg/dL in 39%). Eurocollins solution was used in 45%, 6% were machine perfused (MP), and cold ischemia time (CIT) was 22±7h. DGF incidence was 56% and it was associated with biopsy-proven acute rejection (16% vs. 7%, p<0.001), death-censored graft survival (92% vs. 96%, p<0.001) and patient survival (94 vs. 97%, p<0.001). Variables independently associated with DGF were: recipient BMI (OR 1.036, 95%CI 1.018-1.054), time on dialysis (OR 1.009, 95%CI 1.007-1.011), donor age (OR 1.013, 95%CI 1.008-1.018), Crf (OR 1.337, 95%CI 1.255-1.424), Eurocollins (OR 1.396, 95%CI 1.201-1.424), CIT (OR 1.052, 95%CI 1.040-1.064), and MP (OR 0.583, 95%CI 0.444-0.765).
*Conclusions: DGF incidence in Brazil is high and negatively impacts on KT outcomes. Among modifiable risk factors, we highlight the high incidence of donor acute kidney injury, the solution perfusion (Eurocollins) and the long CIT.
