Take a kidney transplant now or wait for a better one? Hopkins researchers create 'decision' tool
Date:4/9/2013

or this patient to take the kidney, because trying for a better kidney would actually result in much worse outcomes.

The story is different, he notes, for a 25-year-old male who has been on the waiting list for four years and likely has one more year to wait. If he takes the risky organ, he has an 84 percent chance of five-year survival. The chance of five-year survival is 83 percent if he waits for a better organ to come along.

"In this example, it's not worth taking the risk of an infectious disease because you'd do just as well with the next organ without any risk of disease," Segev says. "At the end of the day, this is a personal choice, and it's hard to know which organ is the right one for you. But we hope this makes the decision easier, by clearly illustrating what would be predicted to happen depending on the choice you make."
