The incidence of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) increases in the elderly population. Patients received kidney transplantation have better long-term survival and quality of life than those received maintaining dialysis. However, only a smaller proportion of the elderly patients receive kidney transplantation because of the concerns about high posttransplant complications such as infections and diabetes. In this review, we make a discussion on treatment strategies including prophylaxis of risk factors, donor selection, and postoperative monitoring to raise awareness and improve long-term prognosis in the elderly patients with ESRD.
