New DESCARTES position statement on the long-term risks of #kidney #living #donation. Kidney transplantation with living donor organs is associated with longer graft and patient survival compared with deceased donor organs. Existing studies show that the recipient benefits from a living donation. – But what about the donor? In this position paper, the members of the “Developing Education Science and Care for Renal Transplantation in European States” (DESCARTES) working group board critically reviewed the most recent literature concerning the long-term risk estimates of living donation. “We found that the donor-associated risks are low, but donating a kidney is not free of risks. Therefore, an individual risk–benefit assessment is now of highest importance”, concluded Prof. Daniel Abramowicz, Brussels, Belgium, and Dr. Umberto Maggiore, Parma, Italy, chairman and vice-chairman of the DESCARTES working group.
