On World Kidney Day,Fortis Hospital,Mohali is set to introduce an incompatible blood-group kidney transplant,“ABO incompatible Kidney transplant”,to give hope to hundreds of kidney patients waiting for a transplant in the absence of a donor with a matching blood group.

Senior kidney-transplant surgeon,Dr Priyadarshi Ranjan said,“In cases of kidney failure,the first option for kidney transplant is via family donor,in case the blood group of family donor does not match,then the second option is via donor swapping between two families. But if some body fails to find the third option,then his/her life becomes critical.”

“Initially there were situations in which the patients of kidney failure would have a family donor,but their blood groups do not match,so medically,kidney transplant was not possible. But now we have potent and advanced medicines with the help of which we can do even the non-blood group matched kidney-transplantation. The patient is put on considerably high doses of immuno suppressants as compared to the patients who undergo compatible transplants. They are also put on IVIG (intravenous immunoglobulin)”.

Advising the people on World Kidney Day,Dr Ranjan said,“In India about 60 per cent to 70 per cent of kidney failure is due to unrecognised diabetes and blood pressure. So,those who are hypertensive,diabetic,obese,smoker and above 50 years of age should opt for regular check-ups.”
