Abstract

Only the calcification morphology score of the arterial segment used for anastomosis was significantly predictive of surgical complexity and of DGF. Routine pretransplant CT for calcification scoring in patients of advanced age or those with diabetes mellitus may enable selection of the optimal artery for anastomosis to optimize outcomes.
