Abstract
Reduced renal mass or mismatching kidney size are risk factors for chronic allograft nephropathy. We assessed the effect of mismatching donor kidney weight and recipient bodyweight on renal graft function in 82 live donor kidney transplant recipients who did not have acute rejection. We calculated the donor kidney weight to recipient bodyweight ratio, and established the relation between this ratio and renal indices with a mixed model regression. We showed that recipients with a high ratio had better graft function.
