Despite the rapid growth in the number of dialysis patients ≥65, relatively few of these patients are receiving transplants. Dusseux et al. present a simple scoring system that helps to identify a group of such patients with a higher survival rate on dialysis. They suggest that such a screening tool might help to identify older patients for more comprehensive transplant assessment.
