"Is A Kidney Transplant Right for Me?"

This companion toolkit was developed and written by the ESRD Network's Kidney Patient Advisory Council -- a guide created BY patients FOR patients considering a kidney transplant. Download

Learn How a Donor Kidney Chain Works

  • donor kidney chain begins with a paired exchange which allows a recipient, with an incompatible donor, to get a kidney from another donor, who is also not a match with their intended recipient.

  • Paired exchanges involve two living donors that are incompatible and their two recipients.

  • If the recipient from one pair is compatible with the donor from the other pair, and vice versa – the transplant center(s) may arrange for a "swap"– for two simultaneous, successful transplants to take place.

  • donor kidney chain involves matching multiple, incompatible donor-recipient pairs and may involve multiple institutions (hospitals) in different states.

  • A donor kidney chain may also begin with an altruistic donor ("non-directed" or "Good Samaritan" donor).  This is a person who wishes to donate a kidney but who has no intended recipients.  They simply want to donate to someone who can benefit from a transplant.

  • Donors are evaluated so that the paired donor kidney that you receive is comparable to your donor.
