What is a Kidney Transplant?

A kidney transplant is a surgical operation that involves the transplantation of a healthy kidney from a deceased or living donor into a person whose kidneys have failed.

 

The primary function of the kidney is to filter and eliminate waste, fluid, and minerals from the blood.

When your kidneys lack the ability to filter, dangerous levels of waste and fluid build up in your body, raise your blood pressure and lead to renal failure (end-stage kidney disease). It occurs when the kidneys have lost nearly 90% of their ability to function normally.

 

End-stage renal disease requires removing waste from the bloodstream by dialysis or a kidney transplant to survive.

 

At UroFirst - Advanced Urology Centre, our team of health care specialists works together to achieve a positive outcome from your kidney transplant in Bhubaneswar.

 

Causes of end-stage kidney disease are as follows:

  • Diabetes
  • Uncontrolled, chronic high blood pressure
  • Polycystic kidney disease
  • Chronic glomerulonephritis
  • Severe urinary tract infections

 

Types of kidney transplant surgery

Deceased-donor kidney transplant

 

A deceased-donor kidney transplant is a procedure wherein a kidney is removed from someone who has recently died and transplanted into a recipient with kidney failure. It is done with the family's permission or if the person has pledged to donate their organs.

 

Living-donor kidney transplant

 

A living-donor kidney transplant is a procedure wherein a kidney is taken from a living donor and transplanted into a kidney failure recipient. Generally, family members such as parents, brothers, sisters, children above 18 years, a spouse can donate a kidney.

 

Preemptive kidney transplant

 

A preemptive kidney transplant is performed before your kidney function deteriorates to the point that dialysis is required to replace the kidneys' usual filtering function. It is the preferred treatment for patients with end-stage renal disease.

 

Why do you need a kidney transplant?

A transplant of the kidney is usually the preferred treatment for renal failure when compared to the lifespan of dialysis. If you have chronic kidney disease or renal failure, a kidney transplant can help you feel better and live longer.

 

In comparison to dialysis, kidney transplantation offers:

  • A higher standard of living
  • Decreased death risk
  • Lesser dietary limitations
  • Reduced treatment costs

 

Some people may benefit from preemptive kidney transplantation, which involves having a kidney transplant before they need dialysis.

 

However, a kidney transplant may be more dangerous than dialysis for some people with renal failure. The following conditions may make you ineligible for a kidney transplant:

  • Advanced age
  • Severe heart condition.
  • Cancer that is active or has just been treated
  • Dementia or a mental condition that isn't well-managed
  • Abuse of alcohol or other drugs
  • Any other risk that could compromise the patient's ability to successfully endure the procedure and take the post-transplant drugs required to avoid organ rejection

 

Living-donor kidney transplantation is possible since only one given kidney is required to replace two failing kidneys.

 

If a suitable living donor is not available, your name may be added to a kidney transplant waiting list in order to obtain a kidney from a deceased donor.

 

Dr. Sumanta Mishra is an expert in kidney transplant specialist in Bhubaneswar and has performed many complex surgical procedures with positive outcomes.

We have a high success rate for kidney transplants. Currently, the success rate is over 90%. The experience of the surgical and post-operative care teams, the compatibility and tissue matching of the donor, and other factors all influence the success rate of a kidney transplant in Bhubaneswar.
