Abstract

As the demand for kidney transplantation, particularly from living donors, continues to rise, there is increasing and much needed interest in accurately quantifying the long-term risks of kidney donation. We review the outcomes of kidney donors in the domains of survival, perioperative mortality, risk of end-stage renal disease, quality of life, course of diabetes mellitus in donors, pregnancy after donation, obesity, and prevalence of other health conditions.
