Kidney Donor Profile Index (KPDI) correlated with graft loss and death. However, patients who received kidneys with the same KDPI may have different outcomes.


We developed a score system based on data of 113 deceased donor renal transplants (DDRT) from 01/2013 to 02/2016: mean age 50.7 years; mean cold ischemia time was 13.4 hours; 62% presented delayed graft function; the median of the KDPI was 53.5%. The score was calculated assigning one point for KDPI > 70%, donor serum creatinine > 2.0mg/dL and donor age > 50 years (table 1). Patients were divided in 4 groups according to the sum of points (0, 1 , 2, 3 points) and graft survival was evaluated for each group.


Distribution of patients by points categories: 0 points - 47.8%; 1 point - 27.4%; 2 points - 19.5%; 3 points - 5.3%. One year graft survival was 88.4% for 0 points, 73.6% for 1 point (p = 0.0735 vs 0 pts), 61.5% for 2 points (P = 0.0076 vs 0 pts) and 0% for 3 points (p <0.0001 vs 0 pts). Combining kidneys with a score of 0 and 1 point, 1-year graft survival was 82.9%, significantly higher than kidneys with 2 points (p = 0.0368) and 3 points (p <0.0001) [figure 1].


Kidneys with 0 or 1 point had better survival, being acceptable for most transplant candidates. Kidneys with 2 points presented intermediate survival, and may be more suitable for candidates with a low expectation of obtaining a better graft in a timely manner. None of the 6 recipients who received 3-point kidneys had a functioning graft after 1 year, raising serious concerns about the acceptability of these organs.
