About Kidney Transplant

Human kidney failure is treated via kidney transplantation, often known as a renal transplant. Patients who need dialysis treatment have their kidneys removed. It is a mechanism that, since the kidneys are unable to do it, removes waste from the blood manually.

Kidney transplants are life-saving procedures that replace a failing kidney with a healthy one from a living or deceased donor. 

Procedure of Kidney Transplant

General anesthesia is used during a kidney transplant. This entails administering a drug to put you to sleep so that the surgery can be performed. Through an intravenous (IV) line in your hand or arm, the anesthesia will be delivered into your body.

The process begins with a thorough evaluation of the patient's overall health and kidney function. Various tests are performed to assess their suitability for a transplant. For living donor transplants, a suitable living donor (often a family member or friend) is identified and evaluated for compatibility. Deceased donor kidneys come from individuals who have opted for organ donation. Crossmatching is done to check for compatibility between the donor and recipient, including blood type and tissue compatibility. This helps reduce the risk of organ rejection.

If the patient is deemed an appropriate candidate and a donor is available, they are placed on the national transplant waiting list for deceased donor kidneys.

After surgery, the recipient is closely monitored in the intensive care unit (ICU). This involves monitoring vital signs, kidney function, and signs of rejection. To prevent the body from rejecting the new kidney, patients must take immunosuppressive medications for life. These drugs suppress the immune system to prevent it from attacking the donor kidney.
