Abstract

Introduction and Aims: Comprehensive UK data on young adults (YAs) on renal replacement therapy (RRT) is lacking. 4/5 YAs on RRT will have a renal transplant and international data show a higher risk of graft loss during young adulthood, a time of increasing independence, experimentation and responsibility. We have combined the independent UK Renal Registry (UKRR) paediatric and adult databases to describe patient characteristics, transplantation practice and survival for YAs starting RRT in the UK.
