Epidemiology and Comorbidity Burden of Organ Donor Referrals in Australia: Cohort Study 2010–2015 (project: ORCHARD)

This study looked at all cases referred to the donation service and found that over time, although more people have been organ donors, a much larger proportion are declined for donation. Referral evaluation of potential donors is resource-intensive. We found the comorbidity burden among donor… Read More »Epidemiology and Comorbidity Burden of Organ Donor Referrals in Australia: Cohort Study 2010–2015 (project: ORCHARD)

Excess Stroke Deaths in Kidney Transplant Recipients: A Retrospective Population-based Cohort Study Using Data Linkage (project: CELESTIAL)

Among 17 628 kidney transplant recipients, we found 158 deaths from stroke. This was 19 times higher for women and 9 times higher for men than expected in the general population. Higher risk of stroke death was associated with older age at transplant, ever graft… Read More »Excess Stroke Deaths in Kidney Transplant Recipients: A Retrospective Population-based Cohort Study Using Data Linkage (project: CELESTIAL)

Survival in Living Kidney Donors: An Australian and New Zealand Cohort Study Using Data Linkage (project: CELESTIAL)

This paper looked at outcomes from all living kidney donors in Australia, 2004–2013, and New Zealand, 2004–2012. We investigated any deaths that had occurred in living donors, and if they had died, what caused their deaths. As expected, because living donors are only allowed to… Read More »Survival in Living Kidney Donors: An Australian and New Zealand Cohort Study Using Data Linkage (project: CELESTIAL)

Effect of language and country of birth on the consent process and medical suitability of potential organ donors; a linked-data cohort study 2010–2015 (project: SAFEBOD)

This paper showed Donation referrals were equally suitable whether from a culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) background or not. We found families of CALD referrals were much less likely to give donation consent than other families. We also found that consent was requested less often… Read More »Effect of language and country of birth on the consent process and medical suitability of potential organ donors; a linked-data cohort study 2010–2015 (project: SAFEBOD)
