Predictive capacity of pre-donation GFR and renal reserve capacity for donor renal function after living kidney donation.

Abstract:

Kidney transplantation from living donors is important to reduce organ shortage. Reliable pre-operative estimation of post-donation renal function is essential. We evaluated the predictive potential of pre-donation glomerular filtration rate (GFR) (iothalamate) and renal reserve capacity for post-donation GFR in kidney donors. GFR was measured in 125 consecutive donors (age 49 +/- 11 years; 36% male) 119 +/- 99 days before baseline GFR (GFRb) and 57 +/- 16 days after donation (GFRpost). Reser...
