Approximately one third of kidney transplant candidates has medically acceptable living donors but is unable to receive transplants due to donor - recipient incompatibilities. Kidney Paired Donation (KPD) is a strategy that matches incompatible pairs in order to find compatible matches, thus increasing living donor transplantation. Significant strides have been made since the idea was first conceptualised. However, the technique remains under utilized. This lecture is intended to highlight the current advances, types of paired donation programs, registries, world-wide experience, outcomes, barriers and limitations.
