Organ transplantation is not only an operation-related procedure. The center that will be selected for the organ transplant follow-up and post-transplant follow-up; It is very important to have high level quality of all departments from operation rooms to laboratories, from imaging units to intensive care, from inpatient stages to other branches.
Foaming in urine can herald kidney disease
The most insidious diseases of our age and that can occur without any symptoms of renal failure is rapidly becoming widespread with each passing day. Diabetes, high blood pressure and inflammation of the kidney (nephritis) are the most important causes of chronic renal failure. When you wake up in the morning, swelling under the eyelids, mild edema in the hands and feet, fatigue and urination are the most important signs of excessive bubbling.
From 7 months to 70 years, every patient can undergo kidney transplantation!
Since the necessary precautions are not taken, rapidly progressing disease disrupts the function of kidney that can work properly for 10-20 years within 2-3 years. When the rate of filtration function falls below 10, patients with chronic renal failure become more difficult to survive without a supportive treatment. Renal transplantation is generally recommended for patients with no treatment other than dialysis and transplantation in order to improve quality of life and to achieve permanent improvement in a short time. With the help of advanced medical facilities, doctor experience, children under the age of 5 and patients over 65 years of age can also be transported.
Children don’t stay petite after kidney transplant
Renal failure in childhood is usually caused by congenital causes. Kidney failure in children is seen in 10-15 percent of million population. Therefore, there is a serious child patient group requiring dialysis and transplantation after delivery. Children with renal insufficiency cannot complete their physical development according to their peers due to growth retardation, and their lives are negatively affected by low weight and short stature problems.
Therefore, especially children under 5 years of age with chronic renal failure must be transported. In the past, low weight of children, short length of kidney transplantation while hindering the development of technology, alternative medicines production and surgical experiences thanks to the kidney transplant can be done to children no longer 6-7 kilos. The first year after transplantation is very important for children with developmental problems. Children who spend one year after transplantation in a healthy way begin to grow like their peers and continue their school and sport.
Moments after the transplant can be parents!
After kidney transplantation, the obstacles that used to limit the life of the patient were used. It was recommended that patients stay away from home or even from the room, and to stay away from social life.
With the use of modern methods and increased medical experience, there is no need for any of these. Experience shows that the transplant provides the patient a comfortable life. No restrictive measures are taken now, stating that patients should live in the same way after transplantation, no matter how they live. After the transplant, no restriction is applied to the patients except for the drugs they will use.
People with kidney transplants can have children at the right time, and mothers can breastfeed their children. Improvements in sperm parameters occur after transplantation of male patients with reduced sperm quality during the disease. Since the reproductive functions of women return to normal, they can easily become pregnant after 1-2 years.
Organ transplantation from the live donor is now much easier!
In spite of all the efforts made around the world, cadaveric transplants from brain-dead people have remained a number of times, and these numbers have been increasing very slowly over the years. Therefore, transplants from living donors come into question as a solution to organ failure.
Live kidney donors can return to routine life in a short time with closed surgery!
Considering the health and postoperative comfort of living kidney donors, taking the kidney with closed method (laparoscopic method) is now the gold standard and renal transplantation operations are performed in our center with closed methods. In closed kidney donor surgery, patients experience much less pain after surgery than in open surgery, stay in hospital for a shorter period, return to their normal lives and work earlier.
A long life with a kidney
When you have one kidney left with one of your kidneys, you will have no problems after transplant. You can spend the rest of your life in a healthy way with a single kidney without any medication or diet.
