AbstractThe number of kidney transplants (KT) performed annually in Brazil is less than half of the estimated necessity, leading to a waitlist containing over 26 thousand patients . A recent Brazilian analysis showed that highly sensitized patients (panel-reactive antibody (PRA) > 80%) make up 7.6% of the waitlist. They have only a 19% chance to receive a transplant after 10 years (vs. 44% chance for patients with PRA 0%) and 20% higher mortality rates .
