    摘要: Background. Several comparison studies have suggested that kidney transplant (KT) could reduce stroke risk in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). To avoid the selection criteria bias of using dialysis patients as control groups, we compared the risk of stroke between KT recipients and comparable propensity score-matched dialysis patients. Methods. We used Taiwan's National Health Insurance Research Database to identify patients with newly diagnosed ESRD between 2000 and 2009. We separated them into 2 groups: a KT group and a non-KT dialysis-only group. To evaluate the stroke outcome, we compared each patient with KT to a patient on dialysis without KT using propensity score matching. Results. In total, 2735 KT recipients and 10,940 propensity score-matched dialysis patients were identified. The incidence rates of overall stroke were 9.1 and 23.4 per 1000 person-years in KT recipients and non-KT dialysis patients. Compared with the propensity score-matched dialysis patients, the patients who received KT exhibited significantly lower overall stroke risk, hemorrhagic stroke, and ischemic stroke, the adjusted hazard ratios were 0.37 (95% CI, 0.31-0.45), 0.19 (95% CI, 0.12-0.29), and 0.46 (95% CI, 0.37-0.56), respectively (all P < .001). Conclusions. Through a propensity score-matched cohort, this study confirms that KT is associated with a reduced risk of stroke more than dialysis alone in patients with newly diagnosed ESRD.
