ASN: Kidneys Transplanted in France Would Be Discarded in US

The scientists discovered that throughout this duration, 125,936 kidneys were acquired for transplant in the United States and 4,287 were acquired for transplant in the Paris Transplant Group mate. They discovered a higher percentage of higher-risk transplanted kidneys amongst French versus U.S. kidneys, as determined by the kidney donor profile index (KDPI; mean, 65 versus 42). For higher-KDPI kidneys transplanted in France, 3- and five-year death-censored graft survival, respectively, was 88 and 83 percent for KDPI 80 to 90 kidneys, 83 and 79 percent for KDPI 91 to 99 kidneys, and 81 and 78 percent for KDPI 100 kidneys.
