Abstract: Kidney Transplantation is the organ transplant of a kidney into a patient with ESRD (end stage renal disease). ESRD is the result of many diseases like Diabetes Mellitus, Glomerulonephritides, Oxalosis, Urological problems, Cystic Kidney diseases (Polycystic Kidney disease, Medullary Cystic Kidney disease) and others. Some Kidney malignancies are also treated by Kidney Transplantation (Wilm’s Tumors in children, Renal Cell Carcinoma in adults) provided the patients remain tumor free for at least 2 years after removal of the tumor. ESRD is diagnosed when the GFR drops below 15 ml/min/1.73m2. At this stage patients need Renal Replacement Treatment either with Transplantation or Dialysis (Hemodialysis or Peritoneal dialysis).
