Donation After Cardiac Death Liver Transplant Recipients Have an Increased Frequency of Acute Kidney Injury.
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Donation after cardiac death (DCD) liver transplantation is associated with an increased frequency of hepato-biliary complications. The implications for renal function have not been explored previously. The aims of this single-center study of 88 consecutive DCD liver transplant recipients were (1) to compare renal outcomes with propensity-risk-matched donation after brain death (DBD) patients and (2) in the DCD patients specifically to examine the risk factors for acute kidney injury (AKI; peak creatinine ≥2 times baseline) and chronic kidney disease (CKD; eGFR
