dc.description.abstractKidney transplantation (KT) is the optimal therapy for end-stage renal disease (ESRD), resulting in significant improvement in survival as well as quality of life when compared with maintenance dialysis (Rangaswami J et al., 2019). Patient survival with ESRD is longer after kidney transplantation compared with remaining on dialysis (Arcos E et al., 2019). Older kidney patients with chronic kidney disease benefit significantly from kidney transplantation (Schaenman J et al., 2019). However, these older transplant recipients have greater mortality after transplantation than younger transplant recipients (Schaenman J et al., 2019). This study evaluates factors that may contribute positively, negatively or no-cause effect in renal graft survival.en_GB
