Once Again, Ship Kidneys Not Donors

During a 44 month period in Australia, 84 kidneys were transported for transplantation at a different center (16 were transplanted at the same center).

” A spontaneous fall in serum creatinine by at least 10% within 24 h was observed in 85% of recipients, with no difference between nonshipped and shipped kidneys.

There was no difference in recipients of nonshipped compared with shipped kidneys with regard to serum creatinine at 1 month, 1-year graft survival, or patient survival ”
