How Long Is The Kidney Transplant Waiting List

Posted: by liangshaohua      Time: 2014-12-05 00:48

Topics: Kidney Transplant

Details: My mother has end stage kidney failure, and doctors suggest her to accept kidney transplant. However, I heard the kidney transplant waiting list is long, right?

Expert Answer

Some researches report that more than 93,000 kidney failure patients are on the waiting list for a Kidney Transplant. The wait for a deceased donor could be 5-10 years, while the wait for a living donor may be short. In fact, the exact waiting time is different from person to person. If fortunately, patients can get the chance to do kidney transplant surgery quickly. However, if unfortunately, some patients may have no chance to accept this operation before death.

In addition to the long waiting list, kidney transplant surgery cost is very high. Both of these two aspects make kidney failure patients fail to accept this treatment option.

Are there some other therapies to help prolong kidney failure patients’ life expectancy without kidney transplant?

Fortunately, the answer is yes. With the development of modern medicine, some other therapies can also help reverse kidney damage and improve patients’ glomerular filtration rate. As long as their kidney function increases to 15% and maintain stable, they don’t need to be tormented by the long kidney transplant list any more.
