In this article:
[Through a multicenter retrospective cohort study, conducted at four transplant centers between 2015 and 2016, the authors] sought to determine the risk factors for MDROs among transplant donors. All deceased donors who donated at least one organ were included... This is the first study to determine risk factors for MDROs among deceased donors and will be important for risk stratifying potential donors and informing transplant recipient prophylaxis.
