Abstract

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.
