As the field of lung transplantation advances, the eligibility criteria have evolved and patients with more risk factors for impaired renal function are now receiving lung transplants.  This cohort study examined baseline characteristics of lung transplant recipients and the incidence of renal function impairment in consecutive series of transplants.   Although there was a higher prevalence of renal risk factors in more recent lung transplant recipient cohorts, the renal outcomes after transplant improved over time.
