In our experience, primary cadaver kidney transplantation is a reasonable alternative to dialysis in the older patient with ESRD. The probability for a transplant success is no different from that of other age groups receiving their first grafts from cadaver donors and the quality of life after transplantation is equal to or exceeds that obtained with chronic dialysis.
