At Jaypee Hospital, We have state of art OT and renal transplant ICU equipped with latest armamentarium and very skilled and experienced kidney transplant surgical team. We also offer successful transplant in ABO incomparable case, difficult vascular anatomy, and pediatric and second ( earlier failed) transplantation. There is isolation facility for Haemodialysis of Hepatitis B & C Patients.
We offer the most advanced post transplant nephrology care by team of experts. We have experienced team of transplant surgeon and all patients are assured of personal care throughout the treatment.
The department has the expertise to provide the latest in Kidney Transplant Programme. A dedicated state of art operation theatre backed by transplant ICU provides high quality care to the Kidney Transplant patients. We have a dedicated well trained transplant co-ordinator who is not only available to support the family during medical evaluation of recipient and donor but also help in meeting all legal requirements of the State concerned.
Kidney transplantation is a procedure that places a healthy kidney from another person into the patient’s body. This new kidney takes over the work of the two failed kidneys.
Kidney Recipient Evaluation
Suitability for kidney transplantation is basically depends on two factors:
Blood group The recipient blood group (A, B, AB, or O) must be compatible with the donor’s blood group.
HLA factors HLA stands for human leukocyte antigen, a genetic marker located on the surface of white blood cells. Every individual inherit a set of three antigens from the mother and three from the father. A higher number of matching antigens increases the chance for the transplanted new kidney to last for a long time.
If one is selected on the basis of the first two factors, a third is evaluated:
Antibodies A person immune system may produce antibodies that act specifically against antigen in the donor’s tissues. To see whether this is the case, a small sample of recipient blood is mixed with a small sample of the donor’s blood in a tube. If no reaction occurs, this is described as negative cross-match. This suggests that one will be able to accept the particular donor kidney.
Potential donor needs to be tested to make sure that donating a kidney will not endanger his health. First degree relative as a donor is always preferred over unrelated donor because of better match and improved success rate. Most people can donate a kidney with little risk. The donor undergoes a set of investigation which determines his medical fitness and vascular anatomy of the kidney.
