Abstract

In all modern societies, the percentage of elderly people is increasing. However, this does not necessary reflect the percentage of patients waiting for a new kidney and the availability of organs for this entity differs markedly between countries. Thus, allocation strategies for elderly kidney recipients should be based on the characteristics of the specific countries and take into account: access to the waiting list and availability of living as well as marginal and conventional post-mortem donors.
