Commentary on Kidney Transplantation

Strom Joy*

Kidney transplantation, also known as renal transplantation, is the transplantation of a kidney into a patient who has End-Stage with Kidney Disease (ESRD). Depending on the source of the donor organ, kidney transplantation is typically classified as deceased-donor (formerly known as cadaveric) or living-donor transplantation. Living-donor kidney transplants are further classified as genetically related (living-related) or unrelated (living-unrelated), depending on whether the donor and recipient have a biological relationship.
