Kidney transplantation or renal transplantation is that the transplant of a kidney into a patient with end-stage kidney disease . Kidney transplantation is usually classified as deceased-donor (formerly referred to as cadaveric) or living-donor transplantation counting on the source of the donor organ. Living-donor kidney transplants are further characterized as genetically related (living-related) or non-related (living-unrelated) transplants, relying on whether a biological relationship exists between the donor and recipient. The indication for kidney transplantation is end-stage renal disease (ESRD), no matter the first cause. This is defined as a glomerular filtration rate below 15 ml/min/1.73 m2. Common diseases resulting in ESRD include renovascular disease, infection, DM , and autoimmune conditions like chronic glomerulonephritis and lupus; genetic causes include polycystic renal disorder , and variety of inborn errors of metabolism. The commonest 'cause' is idiopathic (ie unknown).

Diabetes is that the commonest known explanation for kidney transplantation, accounting for about 25% of these within the us . The majority of renal transplant recipients are on dialysis (peritoneal dialysis or Hemodialysis) at the time of transplantation. However, individuals with chronic renal disorder who have a living donor available may undergo pre-emptive transplantation before dialysis is required . If a patient is placed on the roll for a deceased donor transplant early enough, this might also occur pre-dialysis.
