The Urologic laparoscopy offers many urologic surgeries that are minimally invasive. Laparoscopic surgery involves using a video camera and instruments through small openings on the patient's abdominal wall. The surgeon operates by watching a television monitor using these instruments.
Kidney Disease Explained By Dr. Suresh K. Bhagat
Q.WHAT IS KIDNEY PAIRED DONATION?
If you have a potential donor who is not a biological match with you (such as having an incompatible blood group) but may match with someone else, kidney paired donation may be an option. Hence the person who wanted to donate to you can donate to a different patient, and that patient’s intended donor can donate a kidney to you. Kidney paired donation may often help transplant candidates who are very hard to match.
Christian Medical College Hospital, Vellore performed the first successful renal transplant in 1971 in India. The actuarial survival data have significantly improved in the past five decades. In 2000– 07, the 5-year survival was 85%; in the 1990s, the 10-year survival was 70%; in the 1980s, the 20-year survival was 55%; and in the 1970s, the 30-year survival was 20%. Now the actuarial survival rate is 98% at 1 year and 90% at five years. A living donor kidney functions, on average, for 15 to 20 years, and a deceased donor kidney for 8 to 12 years. Read More
Q. HOW DOES A KIDNEY TRANSPLANT DIFFER FROM DIALYSIS?
Transplantation has many advantages like, it improves your health and longevity, provides a lifestyle free from dialysis, you start leading near normal & healthy life, you stop/reduce taking medicines for high blood pressure, low haemoglobin & low calcium. Usually you will have no/fewer fluid and diet restrictions after getting a “new kidney.” Most people even feel well enough to return to work. Read More
Q. HOW WOULD I BE MATCHED FOR A KIDNEY FROM A DECEASED DONOR?
ZTCC (zonal transplant co-ordination centre) maintains the computerized waiting list of recipients of each organ. And it has all the medical information on all transplant candidates who are actively listed on the waiting list with medical information on deceased donors. On confirmation of availability of the organ, the ZTCC co-ordinators will contact hospital co-ordinators about the availability of the organ. The hospital transplant co-ordinators will then connect with the patients. The team will then decide whether to accept the offer for their candidate depending upon patient’s clinical condition and cross match status. If the offer is turned down for one candidate, it goes to the next person on the list.
