  • SD: 9.6 cm for height, 5.3 kg/m2 for body mass index (BMI), and 19.5 ml/min for eGFR.

  • a For patients with renal tumor, the change in the % difference for age up to 75 years compared with age >75 years was significant (P=0.04).

  • b Total N does not add up to 2453 or 780 because of missing data (n=2003 for donors, n=545 for patients with renal tumor).
