Swap Kidney transplantations

Swap Kidney Transplantations in India

When a living kidney donor is incompatible with the recipient and trades kidneys with another donor/recipient pair, the procedure is referred to as a "paired kidney exchange," or "kidney swap." This implies that there would be a simultaneous transplant from two live donors. Swap transplants often entail the exchange of organs between two families who, due to blood group incompatibility, are unable to give the organ to a member of their own family. Nephrologists think that this would reduce the kidney shortage and make it possible to expand the number of transplants lawfully.
