This study uses US transplant registry data to look at changes in both one-year and long-term graft survival post-transplant. This analysis shows that most of the improvement in recent years has been due to improvements in one-year graft survival. However, long-term graft loss rates have improved as well, although not as strikingly as short-term survival.
