  • The definition of CKD is based upon the Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative Clinical Practice Guidelines. LT, liver transplantation; eGFR, estimated GFR based upon the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease four-variable equation.

  • a Participants who died or were re-transplanted within 6 months of the index liver transplant were not evaluable for CKD stage or ESRD status.
