What is Kidney transplant?

According to Dr. Maheiish Rokade (Nephrologist), kidney transplant is a surgical procedure to place a healthy kidney from a live or deceased donor into a person whose kidneys no longer function properly.

Why Kidney Transplant done?

A kidney transplant is often the treatment of choice for kidney failure compared to a lifetime on dialysis. A Kidney Transplant can treat chronic kidney disease with glomerular filtration rate (GFR, a measure of kidney function) less than or equal to 20 ml/min and end-stage renal disease to help you feel better and live longer.

Compared to dialysis, kidney transplant is associated with:

  • Better quality of life
  • Lower risk of death
  • Fewer dietary restrictions
  • Lower treatment cost

Some people may also benefit from receiving a kidney transplant before needing to go on dialysis, a procedure known as preemptive kidney transplant.

But for certain people with kidney failure, a kidney transplant may be riskier than dialysis. Conditions that may prevent you from being eligible for a kidney transplant include:

  • Advanced age
  • Severe heart disease
  • Active or recently treated cancer
  • Poorly controlled mental illness
  • Dementia
  • Alcohol or drug abuse
  • Any other factor that could affect their ability to safely undergo the procedure and take the medications needed to prevent organ rejection

Only one donated kidney is needed to replace two failed kidneys, making living-donor kidney transplantation an option.

Complications of the Kidney Transplant procedure

Kidney transplant surgery carries a risk of significant complications, including:

  • Blood clots
  • Bleeding
  • Leaking from or blockage of the tube (ureter) that links the kidney to the bladder
  • Infection
  • Failure of the donated kidney
  • Rejection of the donated kidney
  • An infection or cancer that can be transmitted with the donated kidney
  • Death, heart attack and stroke

Types of kidney transplant

  1. Live related kidney transplant
  2. Deceased donor transplant-discuss with your nephrologist to register for the deceased donor wait list in your city.
