CKD-13.2 Increase the proportion of patients who receive a preemptive transplant at the start of ESRD
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 with kidney transplant as first treatment modality.
Number of incident persons on renal replacement therapy, under age 70 years.
The cohort includes patients from 1992–2010 who are younger than 70 at the initiation of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Pre-emptive transplants are those in which ESRD initiation date is the date of transplant.
Percentages are calculated in the usual way: 100 X (N/D), where N is the number of preemptive transplants in the year and D is the number of ESRD patients in the year.
