|Abstract:||The recent Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcome (KDIGO) guideline recommends incorporating a "multi-parameter" prediction tool to quantify the lifetime end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) risk for living kidney donor candidate (LKDC) assessment (1).Three such risk calculators with different limitations are now available (2-4) (Table 1). Only the calculator by Grams et al (2) provides lifetime (albeit pre-donation) ESKD risk estimates and is endorsed by KDIGO.|
