Renal transplant is performed on patients with end-stage renal failure that is when the kidney function is irreversibly reduced to below 15% of normal. Living donor kidney transplant is performed when the first-degree relatives of the patient agree to voluntarily donate a kidney.
The Living Donor
There are times when a family member donates a kidney out of his own will. That person is called a ‘living donor’. The living donor must be at the best of his health and well-informed about transplantation. After undergoing tests, any healthy person can therefore donate a kidney without any harm.
The Deceased Donor
This type of a donor refers to a person who has suffered brain death. The brain-dead person’s near-relatives consent to donate the brain-dead patient’s kidneys to a recipient who might be needing a kidney transplant in the days to come.
