Kidney transplantation part 13

Kidney 13

 

What happens when a deceased donor kidney becomes available?

When a kidney from a deceased donor becomes available for transplantation a number of laboratory tests are done. These tests include tissue typing and cross matching. The tests are done to work out who would be the best match for the kidneys.

Once the laboratory tests have been completed the organ donor coordinator will receive a list of potential recipients. They will then contact the transplant unit responsible for the first potential recipient on the list.

If you are selected to receive a kidney from a deceased donor the hospital will contact you.
