Living renal donation is an effective means to expand the organ donor pool and allow more transplants to be performed at greater convenience for the recipient and with greater long-term success. Risks to the recipient appear to be minimal as long as careful donor screening is employed. Living donation has been implemented in extra-renal transplantation more recently. While the experience is limited so far, living donation is likely to remain an important option for liver and lung recipients.
