Delayed graft function (DGF) could worsen early and long-term outcomes of kidney transplantation (KT). DGF is caused by several pre-transplantation and perioperative factors in both donors and recipients. At present, there are no biomarkers or tests during the immediate post-KT period that can accurately predict the development of DGF.
