Abstract

Although graft and patient survival rates were similar between recipients of kidneys from ECDs and non-ECDs, transplantation with organs from ECDs was significantly more expensive. Multivariate analysis using stepwise linear regression demonstrated length of stay to be a strong proxy for total hospital costs. Inherent tensions between the overall good clinical outcomes associated with the use of ECDs in terms of graft survival and the markedly increased costs seen with these organs are evident.
