Measurement of glomerular filtration rate in lung transplant recipients highlights a dramatic loss of renal function after transplantation.

ABSTRACT: Background:Chronic kidney disease (CKD) after lung transplantation (LT) is underestimated. The aim of the present study was to measure the loss of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) 1?year after LT and to identify the risk factors for developing Stage ?3 CKD. Methods:LT patients in the University Hospital of Lyon had a pre- and post-transplantation measurement of their GFR (mGFR), and GFR was also estimated using the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration equation. Results:During the study period, 111 patients were lung transplant candidates, of which 91 had a pre-transplantation mGFR, and 29 had a mGFR at 1?year after LT. Six patients underwent maintenance haemodialysis after transplantation. Mean mGFR was 106?mL/min/1.73?m2 before LT and 58?mL/min/1.73?m2 1 year after LT (P?
