Abstract

To safely expand our living donor pool, we recently decided to work on 3 areas: analysis of causes of exclusion of potential donors, the results of which we recently published, introduction of laparoscopic donor nephrectomy (LDN), and ABO-incompatible (ABOi) transplantation. We sought to determine the impact of the new strategy on living donor recruitment and transplantation during over a 10-year period at a single institution.
