Estimated Post Transplant Survival (EPTS)
With the valuable support of Phil Clayton (ANZDATA) the Renal Transplant Advisory Committee have developed an information sheet for the Estimated Post-Transplant Survival Score system in Australia. It is important that all clinicians involved in transplantation decisions, familiarise themselves with this index.

Please note that EPTS is not being used to direct kidney allocation at this stage.  

The EPTS can be calculated manually using the EPTS calculator available below.
