Abstract

Due to the increasing number of patients with end-stage renal disease, there is a growing demand for transplants for recipients and donors aged 60 years and older. Using data from the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients, we performed survival analyses and multivariate logistic regression to help guide transplant professional decisions regarding the selection of graft type (living vs deceased) and donor age (60-69 vs 70+ years) for recipients aged 60 years and older.
