Understanding Renal Transplantation

Renal transplantation is the definitive treatment for patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD). ESRD can be defined as patients who are suffering with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and require regular dialysis or possibility of permanent dialysis requirement is imminent. Renal transplantation is regularly been done at Max Super Speciality Hospital, Vaishali, by expert team under Dr Shailendra Goel, Urologist in Noida, Ghaziabad, Vaishali. In Kidney transplant in Delhi, Noida, Ghaziabad, donated Kidney is implanted in lower abdomen of patient (Recipient).

How can a patient of ESRD get a kidney?

ESRD patient can get a kidney from either any of his relative (voluntary living kidney donation) or brain dead cadaver. Any relative of patient can donate his/ her one kidney to patient. Donor is medically screened for any disease and fitness for donation. Donor surgery is now routinely been done by Laparoscopy at Max Super Speciality Hospital, Vaishali.

What is Cadaveric Donation?

Brain dead donors are considered dead but donor’s heart continue to beat and maintain circulation to organs. When team of experts declare any hospitalised patient as brain dead, his / her family member can decide to donate his organs (Heart, Liver, Kidneys, Eyes) to patients suffering with end organ damage.

How can any patient opt for Cadaveric Transplantation?

If any patient is not having suitable living donor in his/ her family, he can opt for cadaveric transplantation. Every transplant hospital maintains a waiting list of suitable end stage organ disease patients. We at Max Super Speciality Hospital, Vaishali, maintain waiting list for kidney transplantation from Cadaver. We have done many cadaveric transplantation recently.

What if patient does not have matching donor in family?

Kidney transplantation is usually done with blood group matching donor and recipient. If matching donor is not available in family or near relatives, then ABO incompatible transplant can be done. In this scenario, recipient’s blood is washed off for antibodies against opposite blood group by plasmapheresis and some medications are given for desensitization. At Max Super Speciality Hospital, Vaishali, we have the facility of ABO incompatible renal transplantation.
