Article title

Influence of Donor and Recipient Gender as well as Selected Factors on the Five-Year Survival of Kidney Graft

Languages of publication



The aim of the study was to determine the impact of the gender of renal allograft donor and recipient on the graft function over a 5-year follow-up period.Material and methods. The 154 kidney grafts from 77 donors transplanted into recipients of both genders. Two study groups were formed: one group consisted of male donors, while the other consisted of female donors. The recipients in each of the groups consisted of a pair, one male and one female.Results. 71% of grafts survived the five-year period in the group of male and female recipients when the donor was male; in case of female donors, the rate was 62.5%. Depending on the gender of the donor and the recipient, the rates of grafts with five-year survival were as follows: 79.2% for male donors and female recipients (MF); 62.5% for male donors and male recipients (MM). The difference between both groups was not statistically significant. In the case of female donors and male recipients (FM), the five-year survival rate was 58.3%, while in female donors and female recipients, the five-year survival rate was 64.1%.Conclusions. Grafts from male donors show a trend towards better five-year survival compared to grafts from female donors. The highest five-year survival rate was observed when the donor was male and the recipient was female; the lowest rate was observed for female donors and male recipients.
