Identification of the optimal donor quality scoring system and measure of early renal function in kidney transplantation.Moore, Jason; Ramakrishna, Satish; Tan, Kay; Cockwell, Paul; Eardley, Kevin; Little, Mark A; Rylance, Paul; Shivakumar, Kunigal; Suresh, Vijayan; Tomlinson, Kerry; et al. (Transplantation, 2009-02-27)The early identification of kidney allografts at risk of later dysfunction has implications for clinical practice. Donor quality scoring systems (preoperative) and measures of early allograft function (first week postoperative) have previously shown practical utility. This study aimed to determine the optimal parameter(s) (preoperative and postoperative) with greatest predictive power for the development of subsequent allograft dysfunction.
