KIDNEY TRANSPLANT

Kidney transplantation or renal transplantation is the transplant of a kidney into a patient with end-stage renal disease. Kidney transplantation is typically classified as deceased-donor (formerly known as cadaveric) or living-donor transplantation depending on the source of the donor organ. Living-donor renal transplants are further characterized as genetically related (living-related) or non-related (living-unrelated) transplants, depending on whether a biological relationship exists between the donor and recipient.

A person receiving a transplant usually receives only one kidney, but, in rare situations, he or she may receive two kidneys from a deceased donor. In most cases, the diseased kidneys are left in place during the transplant procedure. The transplanted kidney is implanted in the lower abdomen on the front side of the body.

WHAT IS ABO INCOMPATIBLE TRANSPLANT

Earlier, kidney transplants were possible between a donor-recipient pair having same blood group and with compatible antibodies, else the recipients’ body would reject the kidney immediately. Nowadays, with ABO incompatible kidney transplant Gurgaon, kidney transplants are done between donor-recipient pairs with different blood groups as well. For example, a donor with blood group A can donate the kidney to a recipient with blood group B or O and in the same way person with blood group B can donate to group O or A. Group AB can be a donor to O or A or B.

The Kidney transplant doctor in Gurgaon does a pre transplant plasmapheresis to remove antibodies of incompatible blood group and treat them with Immunoglobulin & Rituximab.
