AbstractOf the 104 patients included, 48 received no induction, 46 received induction, and 10 underwent perioperative desensitization. No differences were observed in the primary endpoint at 12 mo (90.0% versus 97.9%, P = 0.25 for desensitization versus no-induction; 90.0% versus 100%, P = 0.72 for desensitization versus induction). Rates of acute rejection were lower with induction and desensitization compared with no-induction. There were no significant differences in CAV between the groups. Infectious complications were also similar among the groups (10.0% versus 16.7%, P = 0.62 for desensitization versus no-induction; 10.0% versus 30.4%, P = 0.34 for desensitization versus induction).
