CKD-12 Increase the proportion of dialysis patients waitlisted and/or receiving a deceased donor kidney transplant within 1 year of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) start (among patients under 70 years of age)
About the Data
Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
Number of persons under age 70 years registered on the kidney transplant waiting list or receiving a deceased donor kidney within one year of initiation of renal replacement therapy.
Number of incident persons on renal replacement therapy under age 70 years in a year; does not include living donor kidney transplant recipients.
Data on the number of persons on transplant waiting lists include data from the Organ Procurement and Transplant Network (OPTN) and the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS).
The cohort here includes patients younger than 70 in 1991–2009. Percentages are calculated as the number of patients placed on the deceased donor organ wait list or receiving a deceased donor transplant within one year of initiation, divided by the number of patients without a living donor available (i.e., patients receiving a living donor transplant are excluded), and are estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method.
