  • Causes of Kidney Transplant: the causes of kidney transplantation include:
Kidney Disease: the Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) also known as Chronic Renal Disease requires the Kidney transplant. It is a disease that causes a progressive loss of renal function.
Genetic Diseases: Polycystic Kidney disease, number of inborn errors of metabolism and autoimmune conditions including lupus and Goodpasture’s syndrome.
Other diseases: malignant hypertension, infections, diabetes mellitus and glomerulonephritis.
  • Sources of Kidneys: the donors for the kidney transplantation need not be similar to their recipient.
Living Donors: the potential donors are carefully evaluated on medical and psychological grounds to ensure that they are fit for surgery and have no kidney disease. The advanced therapy eliminates the need for the living donor to be of the same blood type of the recipient.
Deceased Donors: they are divided into two groups: the brain dead donors and after cardiac death donors. The heart of the brain dead patients continues to pump which makes it possible for surgeons to start operating. Donation after cardiac death donors are rushed to the operating theatre after their death. The blood no longer circulates in the body of the patient; coagulation must be prevented with relatively large amounts of anti- coagulation agents such as heparin.
