    Abstract

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Delayed graft function (DGF) is associated with an increased risk of graft loss in adult kidney transplant recipients but the association remains inconsistent in pediatric recipients. The aim of this study is to examine the association between DGF and graft loss in pediatric and adolescent deceased donor kidney transplant recipients aged ≤21 years using Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant (ANZDATA) registry. METHODS: The associations between DGF status, overall and death-censored graft loss (DCGL) were examined using adjusted Cox regression analyses. RESULTS: There were 367 recipients followed for a median of 9.7 years between 1990 and 2012, with 82 (22%) experiencing DGF requiring dialysis (DGF-D) in the first 72-hours after transplant. Compared to recipients who did not experienced DGF-D, the adjusted hazard ratios for overall graft loss and DCGL in recipients who have experienced DGF-D was 2.08 (95%CI 1.39, 3.11, p
