Chronic kidney disease (CKD) after radical nephrectomy is common, and associated with an increased risk of morbidity and mortality. In this study we used population-based samples from the Australian states of Queensland and Victoria to identify factors that were associated with a higher likelihood of developing CKD. Apart from recognized CKD risk factors, rural place of residence, and being managed in private compared with public hospitals was associated with higher odds of CKD.
