Two-year management after renal transplantation in 2013 in France: Input from the French national health system database

Abstract : The objective of this study was to describe the management of patients undergoing renal transplantation in 2013 and over the following two years on the basis of healthcare consumption data. The National Health Insurance Information System was used to identify 1876 general scheme beneficiaries undergoing a first isolated renal transplantation (median age: 53 years; men 63%). Overall, 1.2% of patients died during the transplantation hospital stay (>65 years 3.3%) and 87% of patients had a functional graft at 2 years. Thirty-three percent of patients were readmitted to hospital for 1 day or longer during the first month, 73% the first year and 55% the second year. At least 10% of patients were hospitalised for antirejection treatment during the first quarter after renal transplantation, 16% the first year and 9% the second year. The first year, 32% of patients were hospitalised for renal disease (12% the second year), 14% were hospitalised for cardiovascular disease (9% the second year), 13% for infectious disease (5% the second year) and 2% for a malignant tumour (2% the second year). Almost 80% of patients consulted their general practitioner each year (almost 50% consulted every quarter). During the second year, 83% of patients were taking antihypertensives, 45% lipid-lowering drugs, 26% antidiabetic drugs, 77% tacrolimus, 18% ciclosporin, 88% mycophenolic acid and 69% corticosteroids. This study highlights the important contribution of healthcare consumption data to a better understanding of the modalities of management of renal transplant recipients in France, allowing improvement of this management in line with guidelines.
