Kidney transplant treatment sheet

A kidney transplant is the best treatment for chronic kidney failure and significantly improves the quality of life for patients with a lack of kidney function and who need haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis. Nowadays this is a routine procedure, which is not risk-free but which does allow patients subsequently to lead a normal, or close to normal, life. The transplant process consists of surgery to connect the renal artery and vein and also the ureter of the transplanted kidney to the recipient's bladder.Following a few hours in the Intensive Care Department for monitoring, the patient will be transferred to the nephrology ward and will remain there for a few days before progressively resuming their normal life.
