  • There are two types of kidney donations: cadaveric donation (from deceased donors) and living donation (usually from a close relative).

  • Procurement of kidney in exchange for money is strictly banned as per Indian laws.
  • A kidney transplant involves making an incision in the lower part of the abdomen, through which the new kidney is placed.
  • To restore blood supply to the new kidney so that it starts functioning normally, the blood vessels of the lower abdomen are attached to those of the donated kidney.
  •  In the final stage of the surgery, the new kidney’s ureter is connected with the bladder.
  • Average length of hospitalization is 8 days.

What is Kidney Transplant?

  • Kidney transplant is a surgical procedure in which a person suffering from kidney failure gets a new kidney.
  • This new healthy kidney takes over the task of the failed kidneys.
  • The new donor kidney is placed in the lower abdomen.
  • Its artery and vein is connected with those of the patient.
  • This new kidney will start performing its primary function of making urine as soon as blood starts passing through it.
  • There are two types of kidney donations:
    • Living
    • Cadaver
  • In living donation, a donor, usually a close relative will donate one of his/her kidneys.
  • Those in need of a transplant can also receive kidney from a deceased donor.
