Age shouldn't be a factor in kidney transplantation

ransplants using ECD kidneys.

"We are matching based on age, weight and kidney function," said Stratta. "An older kidney has less capacity, and someone who weighs less doesn't need as much capacity. It is a concept that is in evolution."

Stratta believes that with careful patient selection, the kidneys from expanded criteria donors may function for as long as kidneys donated under the standard criteria, about eight to 12 years. He cautions, though, that "long-term follow-up is needed to ultimately determine the risks and benefits of kidney transplantation in this setting."
