What is the Cross Kidney Transplant ?

Cross Kidney Transplant or Bilateral Kidney Exchange is a specialized form of kidney transplantation designed for patients who have compatible living donors. In this procedure, a patient has a suitable donor, but the transplantation cannot be carried out due to incompatibility with the donor. Cross kidney transplant programs have been established to facilitate kidney exchange among compatible donor-recipient pairs. This ensures that each recipient receives a kidney that matches their blood type and other compatibility factors. These programs are typically managed by transplant centers and specialized organizations that coordinate kidney exchanges.

    What is the Kidney Disease?

    Kidney disease refers to damage to the kidneys, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. These two bean-shaped organs are in the back of the abdomen, near the middle of the body. Their main function is to filter waste products from the blood. If they fail to filter blood properly, these wastes build up in the body and can cause fluid imbalances, high blood pressure, weakness and fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and anemia, along with a host of other symptoms.

    According to the World Health Organization, chronic kidney disease affects more than 850 million people worldwide. This corresponds to about 10% of the world’s population.

    Chronic kidney failure is one of the most common diseases leading to death. In 2017, approximately 1.2 million people died from chronic kidney disease.

    Chronic kidney failure has become one of the public health problems in many countries. The incidence of chronic kidney disease is increasing, especially with the increase in risk factors such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

    Kidney transplantation is an effective treatment for patients with chronic kidney failure. With the increase in organ donation, the number of kidney transplants is also increasing. For example, the number of kidney transplants performed in the United States in 2020 is 23,401.

      ABO incompatible kidney transplantation: first cases in Turkey

      Under the chairmanship of Prof. Dr.Murat Tuncer, the Istanbul Organ Transplant Team is the largest kidney transplant team in the world, with over 400 kidney transplants per year. This team has performed many successful national (4) and international (5,6) kidney transplants.

      That team conducted a unique operation at the base of the Medicana Hospital – cross-transplantation/paired kidney exchange according to the “domino” principle simultaneously to seven patients from seven donors. Among European clinics such a transplant was carried out for the first time. New organs were received by patients from both from Turkey and from other countries (8).

      Patients who are told by their doctor that dialysis treatment is necessary should immediately contact the nearest transplant centre. A person can only accept another organ if certain conditions are fulfilled:
      Blood group compatibility:
      Blood types are characteristic indicators provided by the red blood cells circulating in our veins. It does not change from birth and is roughly a pre-code for all of us. There are four basic blood types: A, B, AB and O (zero).
      Which blood group we have depends on whether we carry two different antigens (a type of protein) in our body, called A and B. If we carry antigen A, our blood group will be A. Similarly, if we have antigen B, our blood group will be B. Patients who have both antigens will have blood group AB and patients who do not have either of these two antigens will have blood group O.
