The impact of gender and age matching for long-term graft survival in living donor renal transplantation

, : The impact of gender and age matching for long-term graft survival in living donor renal transplantation. Transplantation Proceedings 37(2): 726-728

In renal transplantation, donor age and allograft size are known to have an important influence on the outcome of the graft reflecting functional renal mass. Women tend to have smaller kidneys with 17% fewer nephrons than male kidneys. The number of glomeruli per kidney as well as the mean glomerular volume closely correlate with kidney weight and negatively correlate with subject age.
