Kidney Transplantation

Kidney transplant surgery involves placing an intact organ into body of a patient, who has end-stage kidney disease, in order to fulfill renal functions. Healthy organ is obtained from cadaver or living donor for kidney transplantation. In our country, living donor kidney transplants account for a substantial part of all kidney transplant surgeries. Living donor transplants have better outcomes than cadaver donor transplants.

Who can donate kidney for transplantation?

Patients with living donors can have a quicker and earlier transplantation. Up to four-degree relatives can donate organ to a patient according to the applicable laws of our country. It is also possible to receive organs from other related or unrelated donors. However, a decision of the ethics committee is required for transplantations from these types of donors. A person must be above the age of 18 in order to donate an organ or tissue. There is no certain upper limit of age. The decision is based on examinations and tests and studies to determine whether organ can be obtained from a particular donor candidate.

Who Cannot Donate a Kidney?
Patients with cancer, active infection and diabetes mellitus and pregnant women as well as patients with a kidney disease and any other organ failure cannot donate a kidney. Decision should be made for hypertensive patients after all relevant examinations are made.
