Advances in Kidney Transplantation

There are several diseases that can cause acute kidney failure. In some cases, the child’s kidneys may not be able to remove the normal waste products that build up in the blood which can lead to severe swelling of the body and organs. So in such cases Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) is a treatment used to support children with kidney failure and/or fluid overload who are too sick for traditional dialysis.
Kidney transplantation is accepted as the treatment option for final stage of renal diseases such as ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease).
Artificial kidney is often a synonym for hemodialysis, but may also, more generally, refer to renal replacement therapies (with exclusion of kidney transplantation) that are in use and/or in development. Despite the ability of artificial kidney  bio artificial kidney - which uses a patient's own cells in an artificial structure is used, which would fulfill functions unaddressed by current dialysis

  • Continuous renal replacement therapy
  • Artificial kidney
  • Bio-artificial kidneys
  • Active medical management without RRT
  • Human leukocyte antigens(HLA)
  • Panel reactive antibody (PRA)
  • Laparoscopic nephrectomy
  • Crossmatch
