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

Table 3

Results of multiple Cox regression analysis concerning graft-survival after isolated kidney transplantation (KTX, ). Data analysis was preceded by a donor-recipient selection process during graft allocation. Only donor and recipient risk factors known before kidney transplantation were considered (all variables listed in Tables e1 and e2 with were considered for selection into the model).
