Kidney transplantation part 39

Kidney 13

 

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A LIVING KIDNEY DONOR TRANSPLANT?

During surgery

Open nephrectomy

The surgeon makes a cut about 15-25 cm long on the side or front of the living donor’s abdoment. The cut is along the bottom of their rib to a point  just above their belly button. The cut will be on their left or right side depending on which kidney is being donated. The vessels connecting the kidney to its blood supply are clamped and cut. Their ureter (which is connected to their bladder) is disconnected.
