Kidney Paired Donation

What is a Kidney Paired Donation (KPD)?

  • Kidney transplantation is the best possible option for permanent kidney failure (End stage kidney disease)

  • Do we hit roadblocks in the process of kidney transplant ?
    Yes, despite having a potential kidney donor there may be blood group or non blood group incompatibility (patient’s blood may have antibodies which attack the donor kidney).

  • Is there a way out of this problem?
    Yes kidney paired donation is the best solution for the above problem. Here the patients, donors, transplant physicians and surgeons join hands to provide the best possible kidney to the needy patient. Kidney paired donation registry helps in the creation of a chain of compatible donor-recipient pairs.
