While acute renal failure or acute kidney injury (AKI) is reversible, it is often seen as a contraindication to transplantation. This retrospective, single-center study compared both standard and expanded criteria donor kidney with and without AKI. Although the rates of delayed graft function were higher in the kidneys with AKI, 1-year results were similar for all major outcomes. Intermediate- and long-term results are needed to confirm the value of this approach, but it may help to further expand the donor pool.
