  • Values reported are mean (SD) or n (%). Donor AKI was defined as at least a doubling of serum creatinine from admission to the terminal value. Expanded criteria donors include deceased donors over the age of 60, or donors over the age of 50 with two of the following: a history of hypertension, a creatinine at least 132.6 µmol/L, or stroke as cause of death.
