Management of delayed graft function

Due to prolonged ischaemic times/ATN etc., not all kidneys function immediately and some take a few days or even weeks before functioning.  During this time the aim is to ensure that we are not missing concomitant rejection or other catastrophe during this time.

Day 1 

  • Duplex scan
  • Routine immunosuppression. Aim for low level of tacrolimus (3-7) if low immunological risk.

Day 5

  • If no evidence of improvement then biopsy to exclude rejection.

Day 10-12

  • Repeat Duplex/biopsy.


Treat rejection as per protocol (page 27-28)
