A simple cardiovascular risk score used in our center to plan cardiovascular workup for renal transplantation can predict outcome in non-heart-beating donor (NHBD) renal transplantation. Patients in the higher risk group, with a score of >12 out of a maximum of 36 are likely to have a longer duration of delayed graft function, poorer glomerular filtration rate at 6 months, and inferior graft and patient survival, together with an relative rate of graft loss within 60 days of >4 (P = .053). Although a high cardiovascular risk score should not be regarded as a contraindication to NHBD transplantation, the score can be used to facilitate recipient selection. © 2005 by Elsevier Inc.
