  1. aeGFR, estimated glomerular filtration rate using the modification of diet in renal disease (MDRD) equation for glomerular filtration rate in the 96 adult donors and the Schwartz equation in three donors under 18 years of age. Expanded criteria donors are defined as all donors who were (1) over 60 years of age or (2) over 50 years of age and (3) had at least two of the following clinical characteristics: hypertension, plasma creatinine level >132 μmol/L (1.5 mg/dL) or cerebrovascular accident as the cause of death [7]. SD, standard deviation.
