Penn study finds living kidney donation does not increase risk of death or heart disease for older
Date:7/9/2014

ney transplant waitlist the pool of potential donors includes people in the same age group, such as their spouses and friends. However, until now we haven't had a lot of information about the effects of living donation for patients in this age group, which has limited our ability to counsel them about risks."

While the research team emphasizes the importance of the study, the new data must be considered along with information from other significant studies of outcomes after kidney donation. For example, Reese says older donors should be prepared for a longer recovery period after surgery than younger donors experience. They must also consider the risk of surgical complications like hernias, and they should understand that they face a very small risk that they might need dialysis one day themselves.

"Our results provide valuable new data that can be used by transplant centers and physicians, and may well affect the decision-making for older patients considering donation," says Reese, adding that although the results are positive, more information about how other comorbidities might affect kidney donation outcomes is necessary. "Future studies are needed to better understand outcomes for potential donors living with chronic medical problems such as hypertension and obesity, which are common in older populations."
