Kidney Transplant

Surgical Procedure

In most cases the barely functioning existing kidneys are not removed, as removal has been shown to increase the rates of surgical morbidity. Therefore, the kidney is usually placed in a location different from the original kidney. Often this is in the iliac fossa so it is often necessary to use a different blood supply:

The renal artery of the new kidney, previously branching from the abdominal aorta in the donor, is often connected to the external iliac artery in the recipient.

The renal vein of the new kidney, previously draining to the inferior vena cava in the donor, is often connected to the external iliac pain in the recipient.
