Abstract Patients with incompatible live donors have had to resort to the long wait on the deceased donor list. Now, through kidney paired donation, these incompatible pairs can enter a kidney exchange program where kidneys are "swapped" between incompatible pairs. This review highlights the evolution of kidney paired exchange and reviews the challenges and ethical considerations within a paired exchange system.
