Dual kidney transplantation with organs from extended criteria cadaveric donors.D'Arcy, Frank T; O'Connor, Kevin M; Shields, William; Zimmerman, Jose A; Mohan, Ponnusamy; Eng, Molly; Little, Dilly M; Power, Richard; Dorman, Anthony; Hickey, David P; et al. (2009-10)The critical shortage of kidneys available for transplantation has led to alternate strategies to expand the pool. Transplantation of the 2 kidneys into a single recipient using organs suboptimal for single kidney transplantation was suggested. We assessed results in 24 grafts allocated for dual kidney transplantation vs those in a control group of 44 designated for single kidney transplantation. Each group underwent pretransplant biopsy and recipients were age matched.
