Kidney transplant: procedure of the intervention
The kidney transplant of which the donor is alive is better than that of a deceased donor because in the first case, the operation is programmed. To minimize the risk of rejection of the kidney after the transplant, the doctor tries to choose the most compatible kidneys. This operation usually lasts between 2 and 3 hours, the new kidney is grafted in the lower part of the abdomen and connected to the bladder, the vessels are then connected and the blood is filtered by this new kidney. One kidney is enough to ensure good blood filtration.
After the kidney transplant, a hospitalization of 7 days minimum is mandatory with a hard diet (no salt and no potassium).
