Kidney Transplantation

  A kidney transplant is a medical procedure to replace the healthy kidney from one living or deceased donor into a patient with chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease (end-stage kidney disease). Kidney transplant is regarded to be the most effective treatment for renal system failure because it is thought to have a positive effect on patient life expectancy. Living donor transplantation or deceased donor transplantation are the two main kinds of renal transplantation.

A kidney transplant is surgery in which a healthy kidney is removed from one human being (donor) and placed into another person (recipient) with dialysis treatment for irreversible end-stage renal disease (end-stage renal disease; ESRD).

A kidney transplantation surgery is the removal of a healthy kidney from a person (donor) and transplanting it into a patient with irreversible end-stage renal disease.

Kidney transplantation is divided into dead kidney donor transplant and living donor organ transplant, depending on the source from which the donor kidney was taken.

Regardless of what fundraising organization is being used, donor transplantation is not permitted by law and is thus unethical. Even with various charitable organizations, the harvesting of organs is prohibited by law.

Kidney-related disorders frequently recur and damage transplanted kidneys (grafts), recently diagnosed cancer, positive cross match and active infection prevent kidney transplantation as long as these conditions persist.
