  • a Adjusted for transplant year, ESRD cause, panel reactive antibody at transplant, previous transplant, years of ESRD, hepatitis C serology, insurance, and recipient and donor race and ethnicity, donor history of cigarette use, and the following donor-recipient combinations: sex, obesity status, weight ratio, height ratio, HLA mismatch, and ABO compatibility. Each probability pertains to the average donor and recipient characteristic for each model.

  • b Because of small cell size, graft failure results are not shown for the pediatric age group (<18) with donors of age 60 years or older.
