EPTS Calculator

An Estimated Post Transplant Survival (EPTS) score is assigned to all adult candidates on the kidney waiting list and is based on four factors:
  1. Candidate time on dialysis
  2. Current diagnosis of diabetes
  3. Prior solid organ transplants
  4. Candidate age
A candidate's EPTS score can range from 0% to 100%. The candidates with EPTS scores of 20% or less will receive offers for kidneys from donors with KDPI scores of 20% or less before other candidates at the local, regional, and national levels of distribution. The EPTS score is not used in allocation of kidneys from donors with KDPI scores greater than 20%.

To calculate an EPTS score for a hypothetical or actual candidate, please enter data for each required variable below.

Point of information Attention: The EPTS % may change on a daily basis due to age and time on dialysis.
Point of information All fields are required.


Has the candidate had regularly administered dialysis for ESRD?

Note: Number of previous solid organ transplants includes all transplants inside and outside the U.S.
Solid organ transplants include kidney, pancreas, liver, heart, lung, and intestine.

A future date can be entered to simulate a candidate's EPTS progression over time.
