Kidney transplant is a surgical procedure in which the damaged kidneys of a person are replaced with a functional kidney from a person who is alive or has recently died. Although a kidney transplant operation is a simpler procedure than most organ transplants, there are certain factors that are of paramount importance for the success of the procedure. To maintain the viability of the donor kidney, it has to be transported in a salt water solution and can only be preserved for a couple of days. During this time, the blood group of the donor and the recipient are matched.
Before the operation, the patient's blood and tissue typing is done. In all transplants there is a high risk of rejection by the recipient's body, and therefore all patients need to be put on drugs like cyclosporin or steroids that depress the immune system.
Kidney transplant surgery usually lasts three to five hours .One kidney from a donor is removed under anaesthesia by making a cut in the abdomen. The kidney is removed with its blood vessels attached to it. The recipient's abdomen is then opened and these blood vessels are then attached to the recipient's blood vessels to ensure proper blood supply to the transplanted kidney. The tube that carries urine (ureter) is attached to the recipient's bladder.
A catheter inside the urinary bladder drains the donor's urine for the first day after the surgery. This is removed after the first day and the donor may be allowed to walk after 24 hours. No dietary modifications are needed and the patient can resume eating as soon as the anaesthesia wears off. The hospital stay is usually not more than 2-3 days. The recipient needs to stay in the hospital from 3-7 days depending on his condition. A bladder catheter is inserted which can be removed after a couple of days and the patient is generally able to eat and move about as soon as the anaesthesia wears off. The recipient is kept on medication to suppress any rejection reaction to the foreign kidney. Complete recovery usually takes a month.
Most people who receive a kidney transplant enjoy a high quality of life. About 97 percent of people who receive a living-donor transplant are living after one year and almost 87 percent after five years. When the organ is a close match, nearly 96 percent of people who receive a deceased-donor transplant are living after one year and more than 80 percent after five years.
