The huge increase in organ donation (27.2 pmp in 2002), that characterized our regional transplant program was mainly due to the increase of marginal (older) donors. As allocating organs coupling donor and recipient age is mandatory, aim of this study was to verify the consequences of such retrieval policy over the renal transplant activity. According our longitudinal data younger uremic patients in Tuscany waiting list for transplantation, have the lowest chance to receive kidney transplantation, mainly with respect to older patients that are easily removed from the waiting list. This unfair condition need to be corrected either by promoting living donation, either increasing cadaveric donation from younger donors
