Summary

Geriatric assessment is now widely used to decide whether older patients with chronic kidney disease should be put on the kidney transplantation waiting list. This study aims to evaluate the association between Geriatric assessment and inscription on kidney transplantation.

Description

There is a high proportion of older patients among patients with kidney failure, raising the question of the access to kidney transplantation within these patients. Geriatric assessment is now widely used to decide whether older patients with chronic kidney disease should be put on the kidney transplantation waiting list.

This study aims to evaluate the association between Geriatric assessment and inscription on kidney transplantation. Secondary objectives includes the analysis of the association between Geriatric assessment and:

  • post-kidney transplantation outcomes
  • quality of life.

It also includes the evolution of Geriatric assessment while still on waiting list and after kidney transplantation.

This study takes place in an University Hospital in Caen, France. This hospital is the only one performing kidney transplantation in the three French departments around. Candidates for kidney transplantation older than 70 years are systematically evaluated by a trained nurse and a geriatrician to perform a comprehensive geriatric assessment, evaluating cognitive functions, risk of fall, nutrition, frailty, functional status, and depressive symptoms. These patients are followed-up each year while still on the waiting list, and once after kidney transplantation. All patients evaluated within this consultation are proposed to enter the study. Patients are excluded in case of refusal or if they are unable to provide informed consent. The inclusion began in January 2019.
