Kidney transplantation part 5

Kidney 13

 

Living kidney donors

Having a living donor also means that the transplant surgery can be organised and planned. This means that the time between when the kidney is removed from your donor and transplanted into you (called the cold ischaemia time) is shorter. A shorter cold ischaemia time improves your chances of a successful transplant surgery and contributes to longer kidney transplant survival.

Hospital admission  and surgery can also be planned ahead of time, allowing you and your donor time to prepare for the surgery and recovery.

Another advantage of having a living kidney donor is that transplant success rates are higher with living donor kidneys than with deceased donor kidneys.
