When your kidneys fail, treatment is needed to replace the work your own kidneys can no longer do. There are two types of treatment for kidney failure – dialysis or transplant. Many people feel that a kidney transplant offers more freedom and a better quality of life than dialysis.
What is a kidney transplant?
When you get a kidney transplant, a healthy kidney is placed inside your body to do the work your own kidneys can no longer do.
On the plus side, there are fewer limits on what you can eat and drink, but you should follow a heart-healthy diet. Your health and energy should improve. In fact, a successful kidney transplant may allow you to live the kind of life you were living before you got kidney disease. Studies show that people with kidney transplants live longer than those who remain on dialysis.
LAPAROSCOPIC DONOR NEPHRECTOMY
(Gold Standard For Treating Kidney Failure)
In a laparoscopic donor nephrectomy, tiny incisions are used and the kidney is removed using a scope or camera and special miniaturized surgical instruments. The procedure is, similar to one used to remove a gall bladder. This minimally invasive procedure has a shorter recovery period and the complication rate. In addition, the quality and function of the transplanted kidneys are excellent. Laparoscopy can be done safely in donor with multiple vessel. Donor is discharged from hospital within 24 hours.
There are a number of distinct advantages including:
• Lower incidence of delayed graft function
• Improved patient and graft survival
• Increased cost effectiveness.
ABO INCOMPATIBLE TRANSPLANTS
ABO-incompatible(ABOi)transplantation is a method of allocation in organ transplantation that permits more efficient use of available organs regardless of ABO blood type, be unavailable due to Hyperacute rejection.
This means that anyone may receive a transplant of a type-O organ, and consequently, type-O recipients are one of the biggest beneficiaries of ABO-incompatible transplantation.
Adequate vascular access is lifeline of patients of chronic renal failure our regular dialysis poor vascular access can make the life of patient miserable & promote mental morbidity. hyper planing ensures hassle free dialysis & thereby increased compliance.
