Delayed Graft Function

Fill in the information below to calculate an individual patient’s predicted probability of developing delayed graft function based on information available at the time of transplant. You may also select the "Patient Population Risk" tab below and calculate the predicted rate of delayed graft function in a given population.

According to UNOS, DGF is defined as the requirement for dialysis within the first 7 days post-transplant.

  Yes No  
Peak PRA: %   * Is the recipient black?
Duration Dialysis:  
* Is recipient Male?
Recipient BMI:

  Has the recipient had a previous transplant?
Does the recipient have Diabetes Mellitus?
Has the recipient had a pre-transplant blood transfusion?
Is the recipient less than 16 years of age?
Has the recipient received a prior or simultaneous extra-renal transplant?
  Yes No  
* Donor Terminal Creatinine: Was the kidney from a living donor?
Donor Age: years   Was the donation after cardiac death
* Donor Weight: Did the donor have a history of hypertension?  
Was the cause of death due to a cerebrovascular event (stroke)?
Was the cause of death anoxia?
  Yes No  
* Total number of HLA mismatches:
Was the kidney machine perfused?
Cold Ischemic Time:  
Warm Ischemic Time: minutes  

The DGF Risk Calculator is provided to Health Care Professionals as a research tool to asses the relative impact of specific risk factors for delayed graft function and to identify patients at greater risk of developing this complication; it is not intended to be used for clinical diagnosis or treatment.

The DGF Risk Calculator was developed using kidney transplant data from the UNOS registry (2003-2006). The DGF Risk Calculator has only been validated in adult, solitary, deceased donor kidney transplant recipients and has not been validated in pre-emptive and machine-perfused transplants.
