Further study details as provided by Hospices Civils de Lyon:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Correlation between elasticity (as measured by elastography) and (a) Banff score for fibrosis, (b) glomerular filtration rate assessed by creatinine clearance, (c) glomerular filtration rate assessed by insulin clearance [ Time Frame: 3 months and 12 months after graft ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of technical failures [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Tolerance (assessed by a questionnaire) [ Time Frame: 3 months and 12 months after graft ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Evolution of the elasticity of the transplant between 3 and 12 months after graft [ Time Frame: 3 months and 12 months after graft ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Correlation between elasticity and arterial resistance index [ Time Frame: 3 months and 12 months after graft ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
