Kidney Transplant can be divided into 2 types depending on the source of the transplant

  1. Deceased donor kidney transplant (formerly known as cadaveric kidney transplant)- when the organs of a dead person, donated after death, are transplanted into your body, it is called Cadaveric kidney transplant.
  2. Living donor kidney transplant, further classified into genetically related and unrelated transplants, depending on whether a biological or genetic relationship exists between the donor and the recipient. This is when a living person donates his or her organs to you.
