Access to the kidney transplant waiting list: a time for reflection
Internal Medicine Journal, 04/18/2012
Pussell BA et al. – Analysis of registry data suggests that the current renal transplant waiting list under–represents the real demand for three reasons. Firstly, a very low proportion of dialysis patients across all age groups are wait–listed for kidney transplantation; secondly, the percentage of dialysis patients listed for transplantation has fallen over time across all Australian states and territories; and thirdly, the number of patients wait–listed varies significantly across the country.
