Abstract Background Living kidney donors (LKDs) with obesity have increased perioperative risks and risk of end-stage renal disease after donation. Consequently, obesity serves as a barrier to donation, as many transplant centers encourage or require weight loss before donation for obese LKD candidates. Therefore, this study sought to assess patients’ perspectives on weight management strategies before donation among obese LKD candidates. We hypothesized that willingness to participate in a weig...

Abstract Background The scarcity of organs available for transplantation has increased attempts to augment transplantation by utilizing obese living kidney donors. The literature has suggested that these donors have increased risks postdonation. Not surprising, the threshold for living kidney donor approval among obese persons is typically higher and the process more costly. Therefore, a screening tool to predict the likelihood of approval among obese living kidney donor candidates was created. ...

In 1958, Edith Helm, who received a kidney from her identical twin sister, became the first woman to successfully give birth after transplantation. Many women have since followed in her footsteps. In this “How I Treat” article, we review our approach to treating a patient from preconception

Abstract Background Body mass index of living kidney donors has increased substantially. Determining candidacy for live kidney donation among obese individuals is challenging because many donation-related risks among this subgroup remain unquantified, including even basic postdonation mortality. Methods We used data from the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients linked to data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to study long-term mortality risk associated with being obese...

Background:To date, no living donation program has simultaneously addressed the needs of both transplant candidates and living donors by separating the advocacy role from the candidate and improving potential donor comfort with the evaluation process. We hypothesized that development of a novel prog

Purpose Noninvasive stress testing is commonly performed as part of pre-renal transplantation (RT) evaluation. We evaluated the prognostic value of myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI)—myocardial perfusion, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and heart rate response (HRR)—post-RT.
