Kidney Transplant Statistics, University of Wisconsin Hospital - Madison
“Graft survival” means the length of time the new kidney works after the transplant surgery. This is different than “patient survival” which refers to the patient being alive. Many things affect how long your new kidney will work. For example, if your kidney came from a living donor it will typically last longer than a kidney that came from a deceased donor.
Below are the adult kidney graft survival rates for living and deceased donor kidneys at the University of Wisconsin Hospital & Clinics. For the most up to date information on both patient and kidney graft survival rates here and at other transplant centers please refer to our website: www.uwhealth.org/transplant or the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) website: www.unos.org
