Abstract

AA had higher pre-donation serum creatinine, GFR, and SBP values compared to Caucasians; however, the degree of change in renal function and blood pressure did not differ between groups following kidney donation. Although long-term studies are needed, our study suggests that AA and Caucasians experience similar short-term consequences after donation. The incomplete data available on donor outcomes in our center and in prior publications also indicates a global need to implement systems for structured follow-up of live kidney donors.
