Living Donor Anniversaries on our calendar in June 2024. Add yours!

  In June I remember one of our most prolific posters, Gabriela Lacabe. She had received a kidney from her mother, Elba, as a child, and joined LDO while on dialysis and seeking a living donor. Katy responded, and Gabriela lived free of dialysis again another seven years. This is what all of us setting foot on this path hope for, that our gifts will help our recipients live more freely, more happily, better in many, many ways.

  Some of the folks we remember this month include those who’ve shared that not all has gone as hoped for themselves or for their recipients. This is what all of us on this path fear, and hope will not be ours to deal with, either our own ongoing complications, or graft failure or our recipient experiencing complications.

  Best wishes, all! May your celebrations of the solstice be long and merry!

Medicare Program; Alternative Payment Model Updates and the Increasing Organ Transplant Access (IOTA) Model

A Proposed Rule by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services on 05/17/2024

This document has a comment period that ends in 44 days. (07/16/2024)

SUMMARY:
This proposed rule describes a new mandatory Medicare payment model, the Increasing Organ Transplant Access Model (IOTA Model), that would test whether performance-based incentive payments paid to or owed by participating kidney transplant hospitals increase access to kidney transplants for patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) while preserving or enhancing the quality of care and reducing Medicare expenditures. This proposed rule also includes standard provisions that would apply to Innovation Center models whose first performance period begins on or after January 1, 2025, and also would apply, in whole or part, to any Innovation Center model whose first performance period begins prior to January 1, 2025 should such model's governing documentation incorporate the provisions by reference in whole or in part. The proposed standard provisions relate to beneficiary protections; cooperation in model evaluation and monitoring; audits and records retention; rights in data and intellectual property; monitoring and compliance; remedial action; model termination by CMS; limitations on review; miscellaneous provisions on bankruptcy and other notifications; and the reconsideration review process.

South Carolina Adopts Insurance Rules Protecting Living Organ Donors
By Allison Bell

What You Need to Know
The new law blocks life, disability and long-term care insurers from making decisions based solely on organ donor status.
Similar bills introduced in Congress have strong bipartisan support.
The measures do let insurers consider actuarial risk when they are evaluating living donors.

South Carolina has become the 34th state to set rules life insurers must follow when taking applications for coverage from living organ donors.
Gov. Henry McMaster signed H. 2355, the bill creating the state’s new Living Donor Protection Act, May 13.

The act blocks insurers from making decisions about life insurance, disability insurance or long-term care insurance based ”based solely and without any additional actuarial risks upon the status of such person as a living organ donor.”
The act affects product premiums and terms as well as insurers’ decisions about whether to offer applicants coverage.

South Carolina has become the 34th state to adopt a living organ donor bill, and Congress is considering two similar bills, S. 1384 and H.R. 2923.

What it means: Measures like H. 2355 could make it a little easier for clients who need organ transplants to find donors, and they could make life easier for clients who want to be the donors.

The background: Living donors are people who donate their kidneys, lungs, parts of their livers, parts of their pancreas or parts of their intestines while they are still alive.
The United States has 108,000 people on organ transplant waiting lists, and 17 of those people die every day, according to data cited by members of the National Council of Insurance Legislators in a resolution supporting federal living donor protection legislation.

U.S. surgeons performed 46,630 organ transplants in 2023, and 6,958 of the 23,294 donors who provided the organs were living donors, according to the United Network for Organ Sharing, a transplant support services organization.

1st person to receive a pig kidney transplant has died
Story by Emily Cooke

The first person to receive a pig kidney transplant has died just two months after he underwent the groundbreaking procedure.

Rick Slayman, a 62-year-old from Weymouth, Massachusetts, had a genetically modified pig kidney placed in his body as part of a four-hour, pioneering surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital on March 16.

Slayman had end-stage kidney disease and had previously received a human kidney transplant, which showed signs of failure after a few years. His doctors proposed the experimental pig kidney transplant as Slayman was restarting dialysis and experiencing severe complications.

The doctors hoped that the pig kidney could last years, CNN reported, but, as such a transplant hasn't been done before, there was uncertainty about how well it would take. Slayman died just weeks after his surgery, but his medical team says there's no evidence the transplant was related to Slayman's death.

"The Mass General transplant team is deeply saddened at the sudden passing of Mr. Rick Slayman," the hospital shared in a statement on Saturday (May 11). "We have no indication that it was the result of his recent transplant." The statement did not detail Slayman's cause of death.

The ethics of organ transplants and encouraging more live donors
Published April 10, 2024 at 4:00 AM EDT
LISTEN • 48:09


Doctors at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston say they have transplanted a genetically modified pig kidney into a 62-year-old patient. The hospital said Thursday, March 21, 2024, it’s the first time a pig kidney has been transplanted into a living person.
News of the first-ever patient to receive a kidney from a genetically modified pig spread around the world. The procedure was a success, and Richard Slayman was discharged from the hospital. But the case has raised many questions about whether this is the answer to an organ shortage and whether it’s ethical.
As around 100,000 Americans wait on transplant lists, there’s a race to improve the transplant process. On Cincinnati Edition, we discuss the latest science and examine the ethical questions. We’ll also hear how a local program is raising awareness about living kidney donation and helping families identify donors.
Guests:

Living Donation in the News / 25-Year Risk of Fracture Among Living Kidney Donors

25-Year Risk of Fracture Among Living Kidney Donors
By Victoria Socha

Worldwide, the prevalence of living kidney donation is increasing; approximately 30,000 individuals become living donors each year. In the United States, of 459,849 transplants performed, 187,194 individuals have donated a kidney. In 2022, 29.2% of kidney transplants performed in the United States were from living donors.


According to Hilal Maradit Kremers, MD, and colleagues, there are health risks to the donor associated with living kidney donation. While the 15-year observed risk of end-stage kidney disease in kidney donors is low, it is reported to be 3.5 to 5.3 times higher than the projected risk in the absence of donation. Results of previous studies of markers of mineral and bone metabolism among kidney donors following kidney donation have suggested that bone quality may be impaired in kidney donors, due to reductions in kidney mass, lower concentrations of serum 1,25 dihydroxyvitamin D, and secondary increases in serum parathyroid hormone.
Dr. Kremers et al conducted a survey-based study designed to compare the overall and site-specific risk of fracture among living kidney donors. The survey included strictly matched controls from the general population who would have been eligible to donate a kidney but did not do so. Results of the study were reported in JAMA Network Open.
The study exposure was living kidney donation. The primary outcome of interest was a comparison of the rates of overall and site-specific fractures between living kidney donors and controls. Standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) were used in the comparison.
The survey was conducted between December 1, 2021, and July 31, 2023. Living donors (n=5065) at three large transplant centers in Minnesota were invited to participate in a survey regarding their bone health and history of fractures. Using the Rochester Epidemiology Project database, the researchers invited a nondonor control population of 16,156 individuals with no history of comorbidities to complete the same survey.
Survey questions were derived from validated surveys used in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, Framingham Study, Women’s Health Initiative, Study of Osteoporotic Fractures, and the Nurses’ Health Study. The survey included questions on bone health and fracture history, self-reported race and ethnicity, height, weight, smoking, alcohol use, menstrual status, self-reported osteoporosis diagnosis, and use of medications known to interfere with mineral metabolism.
A total of 2132 living kidney donors and 2014 nondonor controls responded to the survey. Of the 2132 donors who responded, mean age was 67.1 years and 58.4% (n=1245) were female. Of the 2014 controls, mean age was 68.6 years and 56.6% (n=1140) were female. There was substantial variation in participation rates between the two groups: 42.1% (2131/5065) of donors responded versus 12.5% (2014/16,156) of controls. There were also variations in participation rates by age (rates were similarly highest among individuals 67 to 72 years of age for both donors and controls). Participation rates were highest among White participants compared with those of a racial or ethnic minority group or unknown race. Rates varied across donation medical centers as well.
Forty-two donors and 137 controls were excluded from analyses due to incomplete survey data. All further analyses comparing the observed and expected number of fractures were limited to the 2090 donors and 1877 controls with complete information on fractures. Among the final analysis cohort, mean time between donation or index date and completion of the survey was 24.2 years for donors and 27.6 years for controls. Controls were 1.5 years older than the donors (68.6 years vs 67.1 years).
Among the 2090 donors, the rate of all types of fractures was significantly lower than among the 1877 controls: 443.0 observed versus 499.8 expected fractures (SIR, 0.89; 95% CI, 0.81-0.97; P=.009). However, there were significantly more vertebral fractures among donors than among controls: 51 observed versus 36 expected vertebral fractures (SIR, 1.42; 95% CI, 1.05-1.83; P=.02). Among men, there were 21.0 observed vertebral fractures versus 12.5 expected (SIR, 1.67; 95% CI, 1.04-2.47; P=.04).
Results of two separate validation studies among the controls demonstrated that controls who returned surveys were similar to controls who did not return surveys in terms of frequency and types of fractures. The fracture survey instrument was validated among a random sample of 332 controls who returned surveys (166 who reported any fracture and 166 who reported no fractures). Overall agreement of fractures reported on the survey versus fractures found by a nurse in the complete historical medical records was good (89.5% raw agreement). The agreement was better than would be expected by chance alone.
The researchers cited some limitations to the study findings, including the historical nature of the study that resulted in an inability to screen nondonor controls for factors such as laboratory test and imaging results that would have precluded kidney donation. Other limitations included the inability to conduct stratified analyses by race and ethnicity due to small numbers of those groups, and the possibility of inaccurate recall among participants of the exact timing of fractures.
In summary, the authors said, “In this survey-based study, we observed a reduction in overall fractures but an excess risk of vertebral fractures among living kidney donors compared with controls after a mean follow-up of 25 years. Treatment of excess vertebral fractures with dietary supplements such as vitamin D3 may reduce the numbers of vertebral fractures and patient morbidity.”

Key Points
Question  What is the long-term risk of overall and site-specific fractures among living kidney donors?
Findings  In this survey study that included 2132 living kidney donors and 2014 controls, the overall rate of fractures was significantly lower among donors than controls. However, there were significantly more vertebral fractures among donors than controls.
Meaning  This study suggests that, although the overall fracture rate among donors was low, reductions in kidney mass and prolonged hyperparathyroidism may predispose living kidney donors to trabecular bone loss and vertebral fractures.
Abstract
Importance  Living kidney donors may have an increased risk of fractures due to reductions in kidney mass, lower concentrations of serum 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, and secondary increases in serum parathyroid hormone.
Objective  To compare the overall and site-specific risk of fractures among living kidney donors with strictly matched controls from the general population who would have been eligible to donate a kidney but did not do so.
Design, Setting, and Participants  This survey study was conducted between December 1, 2021, and July 31, 2023. A total of 5065 living kidney donors from 3 large transplant centers in Minnesota were invited to complete a survey about their bone health and history of fractures, and 16 156 population-based nondonor controls without a history of comorbidities that would have precluded kidney donation were identified from the Rochester Epidemiology Project and completed the same survey. A total of 2132 living kidney donors and 2014 nondonor controls responded to the survey. Statistical analyses were performed from May to August 2023.
Exposure  Living kidney donation.
Main Outcomes and Measures  The rates of overall and site-specific fractures were compared between living kidney donors and controls using standardized incidence ratios (SIRs).
Results  At the time of survey, the 2132 living kidney donors had a mean (SD) age of 67.1 (8.9) years and included 1245 women (58.4%), and the 2014 controls had a mean (SD) age of 68.6 (7.9) years and included 1140 women (56.6%). The mean (SD) time between donation or index date and survey date was 24.2 (10.4) years for donors and 27.6 (10.7) years for controls. The overall rate of fractures among living kidney donors was significantly lower than among controls (SIR, 0.89; 95% CI, 0.81-0.97). However, there were significantly more vertebral fractures among living kidney donors than among controls (SIR, 1.42; 95% CI, 1.05-1.83).
Conclusions and Relevance  This survey study found a reduced rate of overall fractures but an excess of vertebral fractures among living kidney donors compared with controls after a mean follow-up of 25 years. Treatment of excess vertebral fractures with dietary supplements such as vitamin D3 may reduce the numbers of vertebral fractures and patient morbidity.
