We appreciate Dr. de Groot and colleagues' interest in our article. Multivariable analyses were conducted but then removed from an earlier version of our article to prioritize requested stratified analyses. Given the interest, the Table shows these multivariable analyses.
The results are entirely consistent with our reported findings. Nations with presumed consent have higher rates of deceased donor kidney transplantation but lower rates of living donor kidney transplantation than nations with explicit consent. Any nation deciding to adopt presumed consent should carefully consider and reduce any negative effect on rates of living kidney donation.
