Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

Why should I consider a kidney transplant instead of dialysis?

While dialysis is a life-saving treatment, it does only about 10 percent of the work that a functioning kidney does. Because of its impact on the body, dialysis can also cause other health problems. Patients typically live 10 to 15 years longer with a kidney transplant than if they stayed on dialysis. And most people report that in comparison, transplantation offers them a much better quality of life.

Am I good candidate for a kidney transplant?

Being a good candidate for transplant depends upon your physical health, emotional well-being, and ability to manage medication and care plans.

What disqualifies me from getting a kidney transplant?

Certain conditions can prevent you from receiving a kidney transplant, including if you: Have or recently had cancer. May live only a few more years because of an illness. Have infection that can’t be treated or keeps coming back.

Do kidney transplants last forever?

Although most transplants are successful and last for many years, how long they last can vary from one person to the next. Many people will need more than one kidney transplant during a lifetime.

What are the disadvantages of donating a kidney?

Kidney donation is a low-risk procedure, but this does not mean that it is risk-free. While complications happen less than 5 percent of the time, as with any surgical procedure, there is a small possibility of infection, anesthesia complications, bleeding, blood clots, hernias or post-operative pneumonia.

Compared to dialysis, kidney transplantation is associated with the following:

Better quality of life

Lower risk of death

Less dietary restrictions

Lower treatment costs

Some people may also have a kidney transplant before they need dialysis, a method known as preventive kidney transplantation.

Consultation with a urologist

But for certain people with kidney failure, a kidney transplant may be more dangerous than dialysis. Conditions that may prevent you from being eligible for a kidney transplant include the following:

High age

Severe heart disease

Active or recently treated cancer

Dementia or mental illness that is not well controlled

Alcohol or drug use

Any other factor that affects the safety of the procedure and the use of the required drugs after transplantation and prevents the transplanted organ from being rejected.

Patient evaluation for transplantation

After choosing a transplant center, it will be evaluated whether you have the necessary conditions for a kidney transplant center or not ?!

The team at the transplantation center will assess whether you:

You are healthy enough to have surgery and tolerate lifelong medications after a transplant.

Have a disease that interferes with the success of the transplant.

You are willing and able to take the medication according to the instructions and follow the recommendations of the transplant team.

The evaluation process may take several days and includes the following:

A complete physical examination

Imaging studies such as X-ray scan, MRI or CT

blood test

Psychological evaluation

Any other necessary tests prescribed by your doctor.

After the evaluation, the transplant team will share the results with you and tell you if you have been accepted as a kidney transplant candidate. Each transplant center has its own criteria of competence. If you are not admitted to one transplant center, you can apply to other centers.

 

Kidney transplant operation

Patient expectations in kidney transplant surgery

  1. A) Before the operation

1) Find a compatible organ

A kidney donor can be alive or dead, compatible or incompatible with you. The transplant team will consider several factors when evaluating whether all donors will be suitable for you.

Tests to determine if a donated kidney may be right for you include the following:

blood type

It is preferable to get a kidney from a donor whose blood type matches you. Blood type incompatible transplants are also possible, but require additional medical treatment before and after the transplant to reduce the risk of organ rejection. These are known as ABO incompatible kidney transplants.

Tissue group

If your blood type is compatible, the next step is to test a tissue group called the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) group. This test compares genetic markers that increase the likelihood of increased kidney survival in transplantation. A good fit means less body rejection.

Compatibility

The third and final adaptation involves mixing a small sample of your blood with a blood donor in the laboratory. This test determines whether the antibodies in your blood react against certain antigens in the donor’s blood.

2) Donation of a kidney from a living person

Finding a living kidney donor volunteer is preferable to waiting for a compatible kidney donor from the deceased.

  1. B) During the operation

Kidney transplants are performed under general anesthesia, so you do not wake up during the operation. During surgery, the surgical team monitors your heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen levels.

The surgeon makes an incision in the lower part of your abdomen and inserts a new kidney into your body. If your kidneys do not cause complications such as high blood pressure, kidney stones, pain or infection, they will stay in place.

New kidney blood vessels attach to the blood vessels in the lower abdomen, just above one of your legs.

  Conclusion

After a successful kidney transplant, the new kidney will filter your blood and you will no longer need dialysis.

To prevent the rejection of donated kidney, you need medications to suppress the immune system. Because these immunosuppressive medications make your body vulnerable to infection, your doctor may also prescribe antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal medications.

It is important to take all your medications as prescribed by your doctor. Even if you stop taking your medication for a short time, your body may reject the new kidney. Contact your transplant team immediately if you experience any side effects that may prevent you from taking your medication.

After the transplant, skin examinations and skin checkups are performed by a dermatologist to prevent skin cancer. Up-to-date screening is also highly recommended for other cancers.
