Transition from Living Unrelated Kidney Donation to BDD

253.1 - Transition from Living Unrelated Kidney Donation to BDD: Is the Story of Transplantation Different in Developing Countries?

Presenter: Mitra, Mahdavi-Mazdeh, Tehran, Iran
Authors: Mitra Mahdavi-Mazdeh

It is well known that transplantation is a life-saving modality of renal replacement therapy. However, BD transplantation needs a fully developed infrastructure, teamwork and expertise, as well as public education. This webinar will present an experience from a middle income country that started with living unrelated kidney donation (LUKD) but then went on to implement a brain-dead donor (BDD) program.
