New Delhi, June 26, 2019: Doctors at BR Life Kalinga Hospital successfully conducted a unique case of Kidney Swap Transplant recently. The patients were operated simultaneously for 16 hours by a team of doctors at B R Life Kalinga. The patients are doing well and are recovering satisfactorily. Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is known to affect approximately 1 million people in India every year

“In India, diabetes and hypertension are the leading causes resulting in 40–60% cases of Chronic Kidney Disease. With increasing incidence of CKD, the number of patients undergoing dialysis in India is also increasing by 10 – 15% every year. Once a person has developed kidney failure the only options are lifelong dialysis or kidney transplant. This can be avoided with timely intervention and by managing health conditions that cause kidney damage, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, extreme stress.” said Dr. Saiprasad Sahoo, Consultant Nephrologist, BR Life Kalinga Hospital

According to The Ministry of Health, the requirement for transplantation of kidneys could range between 2-3 Lakh per year with a mere 6,000 transplants occurring in reality. The major challenges for organ transplant in India are the sociocultural and religious barriers. Even in case of live donor transplant, the chances of going forward with the procedure is rare. One of the primary reasons in such cases is the mismatch of the blood groups due to which an organ cannot be transplanted and the ideal option is to opt for Kidney Swap Transplant.
