What is Kidney Transplant?

A kidney transplant is a surgery in which a person with failed kidneys accepts a new kidney to maintain the function of blood purification. It is a process implemented to substitute an unhealthy kidney with a healthier one from a different individual. The kidney might come through a deceased organ donor or from an active donor. Family members who may are not related but make a fine match can donate one of their kidneys. This transplant is called a living transplant. Individuals who donate a kidney can stay healthful with the remaining kidney. A person accepting a transplant usually receives single kidney, but, in unexpected situations, the patient can receive both kidneys from a deceased donor.

A person can go ahead with an active, routine life with only one kidney. Studies have revealed that one kidney is enough to keep the body fit. After recuperating from surgery, a donor can do all the routine work like driving, exercising and participating in sports, though contact sports are not suggested. A donor can carry on with all types of activities. Also, being a donor does not affect a person’s capability to have a child.

THE LAW AND RULES GOVERNING ORGAN DONATION AND TRANSPLANTATION IN INDIA

Transplantation of Human Organs Act (THO) was passed in 1994 and rules were made in 1995. These rules are recently amended in 2008. The motive of the act was to regulate transplants and promote deceased (cadaver) donor organ transplant. The main provisions of the THO act and the newly passed Gazette by the Government of India include the following:

Prostate cancer has a better chance of successful treatment if detected early, when it's still confined to the prostate gland

For living donors – For persons who can donate the kidney with no any legal formalities. The relatives who are permitted to donate include father, mother, sisters, brothers, daughter, son, and spouse. Recently, grandparents have been included in the list of first relatives. The first relatives are required to present the evidence of their relationship by genetic testing and/or by legal documents. In case if there are no first relatives, the donor and recipient are required to take special permission from the government appointed authorization committee and come for an interview in front of the committee to confirm that the purpose of donation is solely non emotional

Important Note : The cadaveric donors are not often available and also there is a long waiting list for the cadaveric donors. For the international patients there is only living donor transplant suggested. They are supposed to bring a healthy donor with them who meets the above mentioned criteria. Cadaveric transplants are impractical for overseas patients. Additionally the success ratio of living donor transplant is higher than cadaveric donor transplant.
