Influence of Deceased Donor and Pretransplant Recipient Parameters on Early Overall Kidney Graft-Survival in Germany

Table 2

Summary of recipient characteristics used in univariate analyses of graft-survival after isolated kidney transplantation (KTX). For interval-scaled parameters absolute numbers, median, interquartile range, risk ratio (with 95% confidence interval), and values (Cox regression) are shown. For nominal and categorical parameters absolute numbers, proportions, the percentage of graft-failures, and values (log-rank test) are shown. All recipient characteristics investigated are shown in supplementary Table e2.
