Abstract Delayed graft function (DGF) is defined as the necessity for dialysis during the first week after transplantation. This study sought to describe patterns of dialysis prescription and evaluate the impact of dialysis dose in acute rejection. Among 82 patients who received a deceased donor kidney transplant, clinical and laboratory data were evaluated at the moment of dialysis indication. Prescribed and delivered dialysis doses (Kt/V and urea reduction ratio) were analyzed during the first dialysis and the first week (Kt/V) after transplantation. We examined the association between Kt/V and acute rejection. Prescribed Kt/V at the first dialysis session was adequate (2.24 +/- 0.51). However, delivered Kt/V was inadequate (0.75 +/- 0.38). Prescribed and delivered Kt/V during the first week after transplantation were suboptimal, namely, 2.45 +/- 1.52 and 1.56 +/- 0.99, respectively. Dialysis dose had no impact on the occurrence of an acute rejection episode. Among DGF patient, dialysis was prescribed late and a low dose was achieved.
