|Abstract:||Introduction: Chronic Kidney Disease 9CKD) in post-lung-transplant is defined as estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of <60 mL/min/1.73m2 in at least 1-month post-transplant, which corresponds to the National Kidney Foundation Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative (KDOQI) guidelines |
Method: We analysed fifty transplant recipients through electronic records. Data on eGFR at baseline and post lung transplant and few independent risk factors such as age, gender, and indications and types of transplants we collected and analysed in Microsoft excel. We used a multiple variable association modelling to interpret our findings.
Results: The results demonstrate that the prevalence of CKD is higher in elderly patients aged >65 with an absolute difference of 12.9%, male gender with 3.8%, COPD as indications of lung transplant with 6.5%, and single lung transplant with 4.3%.
Conclusion: CKD is common in post-transplant patients, particularly in elderly, male populations, with a COPD related single lung transplant. This finding is significant as more study needed to identify the association between these risk factors development of CKD.
