This model calculates a risk score for a recipient of a potential live donor kidney.
The LKDPI is on the same scale as the deceased donor KDPI but can be negative (an organ of lower predicted risk than any DD kidney) or exceed 100 (an organ of higher predicted risk than any DD kidney). For example, a donor with an LKDPI of 20 indicates that live donor transplantation using a kidney from this donor would have expected risk equivalent to deceased donor transplantation from a donor with KDPI of 20.
The population used for this study includes kidney transplant recipients from 2005 to 2013. All-cause graft loss was modeled using multivariate Cox regression.
Based on research done by Massie AB, Leanza J, Fahmy LM, Chow EKH, Luo X, Segev DL. A risk index for living donor kidney transplantation. In submission.
