Purpose: We aimed to investigate whether 6% HES 130/0.4 was associated with postoperative reduction of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in donor patients who underwent nephrectomy for living kidney transplantation. Methods: This retrospective study included 213 living kidney transplant donors treated at Kyushu University Hospital in Japan from April 2014 to March 2018. Patients who were administered 6% HES 130/0.4 were allocated in the HES group (n = 108), and those who were not were allocated in the control group (n = 105). The postoperative decrements in estimated glomerular filtration rates (eGFRs) from preoperative values were calculated on postoperative days (PODs) 1, 3, and 14. Decline in kidney function (DKF) according to the Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) classification were analyzed by multivariable-adjusted ordinal logistic regression to estimate odds ratios (ORs) for postoperative DKF. Results: In HES group, administration amount of HES was median 9.4 [interquartile range: 8.2–14.3] ml/kg. Postoperative decrements in eGFR were similar in the control and HES groups on POD 1 (control group: mean 32.0 vs. HES group: 33.0 mL/min/1.73 m2), same as POD 3 (21.1 vs. 22.4 mL/min/1.73 m2) and POD 14 (26.0 vs. 25.9 mL/min/1.73 m2), even after adjusting for confounding factors. The multivariable-adjusted ORs for postoperative DKF did not significantly increase in the HES group on POD 1 (OR: 0.88), POD 3 (OR: 0.96), and POD 14 (OR: 0.52) compared with the control group. Conclusion: Six percent HES 130/0.4 is not associated with postoperative renal dysfunction in donor patients undergoing nephrectomy for kidney transplantation.
