Renal transplantation in patients older than 60 years has long been regarded with skepticism owing to the increased risk of complications although, as compared with dialysis treatment, a graft seems to improve not only the quality of life but also long-term patient survival. This study sought to analyze the impact of recipient age older than 60 years on patient and graft outcomes.

Advanced age is not an exclusion criterion for kidney transplantation.

Abstract

Renal transplantation in patients older than 60 years has long been regarded with skepticism owing to the increased risk of complications although, as compared with dialysis treatment, a graft seems to improve not only the quality of life but also long-term patient survival. This study sought to analyze the impact of recipient age older than 60 years on patient and graft outcomes.
