Why do kidneys fail
 
Acute Kidney insult (AKI)
Chronic kidney disease (CKD)
  Anemia and increasing weakness could be the first manifestation of kidney disease and one must keep that possibility in mind. Bone pain may also be the first manifestation of kidney disease.
   
 
 
End Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD)
  ESKD is a stage at which practically entire kidney function is lost. On ultrasound examination the kidneys are usually small and shrunken. Kidneys can be considered to be dead. Life long dialysis or transplantation becomes mandatory for survival.
   
 
 
Extent of Problem:
 
Each year approximately 350,000 - 400,000 people develop ESKD.
There are around only 1000 dialysis centers in India that cater to about 10,000 (about 2 %) patients.
Only 4000 - 5000 (about 1%) are fortunate to go for transplants each year in the whole country.
So what happens to the remaining 97 % of the patients? God only knows.
   
 
 
Treatment options for ESKD:
  There are only two treatment options for ESKD
 
1. Life long Dialysis
2. Kidney Transplantation.
   
 
 
Dialysis
  Dialysis is a process that removes waste products and excess fluid that accumulate in the blood as a result of failure of the kidneys to function.

Dialysis is not a cure for kidney failure. It only substitutes for some functions of the kidneys like removing some waste products and excess water from the body. When the kidneys have ceased functioning permanently they will not resume function no matter how many dialysis treatments are given. The patient with permanently damaged kidneys (ESRD) will therefore need dialysis treatment for the rest of his life unless he has a successful kidney transplant. A patient with temporarily damaged kidneys (ARF) will be able to discontinue dialysis once his kidneys recover.

Where can the kidney come from?

  Kidneys can come from two sources:
1. Living donor, usually a close blood relative
Living Related
Exchange SWAP
2. Deceased (Cadaver) Donor
Kidney transplant procedure
  The procedure of kidney transplantation involves evaluation of the recipient to assess his/her suitability to undergo transplant, evaluation of suitable donor and transplant operation
  1. Recipient Evaluation
  2. Transplant Operation
  3. Post transplant care
  It is important for you and your family to understand every aspect of the post transplant care. Since each member of the health care staff (doctors, nurses, social workers) contributes to your care, it is important for you and your family to work together with them. Informative booklets on transplant care will be of great help.

Result of kidney transplantation
  The success rate with a transplanted kidney depend upon many different factors. The two most important are the closeness of the match between the donor and the recipient and the sensitivity of the recipient's immune system. The best possible donor is a brother or sister with the complete match which has a 95 % chance f working after one year. Many people do not receive a kidney from live donors. Kidneys from unrelated donor (someone who has recently died) have an 80-85% chance of working after one year. If you have already had one kidney transplant the success rate will be slightly less than the above and should be discussed with your doctor in greater detail.
