Abstract
BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to identify the follow-up status of living kidney donors after transplantation. METHODS: This study was a secondary analysis of the medical record data from one hospital in Korea. Eighty-one donors from February 2010 to April 2016 were selected for analysis of follow-up status. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Kaplan-Meier estimator, and Cox regression. RESULTS: Overall, 48.4% of donors continued to participate in follow-up visits. Donor follow-up rates at 1, 2, and 3 years were 75.1%, 58.2%, and 48.4%, respectively. Significant predictors of follow-up loss among donors were smoking habit and the type of follow-up health care provider. CONCLUSION: For management of the physical and psychological health of donors, continuous care by the nephrologist and surgeon is required following transplantation.
