Background: Improvements in immune-suppressing drugs have a short-term effect on kidney ‎transplants but do not have much long-term effect. In order to increase the duration of kidney ‎transplant survival, understanding the significant parameters is of great importance. This study aims to ‎identify key parameters (before the transplant occurs) which affect kidney transplant survival. ‎ Materials and methods: To conduct this review, the scientific databases was searched and more ‎than 200 related titles were retrieved; and the abstracts were reviewed to determine which studies ‎were relevant to the study. The literature analysis was based on the goals of the studies themselves, ‎the number of citations, and the reliability of the sources cited. Ultimately, 60 studies included for ‎further analysis. ‎ Results: Based on the frequency of each parameter which influenced graft survival, the following ‎parameters were determined to have higher frequencies compared to other parameters, with regards to ‎survival time of the kidney transplant: the ages of the donor and recipient, socioeconomic status, ‎immune-suppressing drugs, HLA matching, time on the waiting list, live or deceased donor, the decade ‎in which the operation occurred, cold ischemia time, and reaction to antibiotics. ‎ Conclusion: The influence of some of the kidney transplant survival parameters was acknowledged in ‎the majority of studies; however, some parameters have been the subject of disagreement among ‎studies. In order to resolve this issue, we suggest a search of international data and meta-analysis of ‎current literature to better understand the parameters of kidney transplant survival.‎ Keywords: Kidney transplant, Kidney transplant survival, Factors affecting kidney transplant ‎survival.‎
