Author(s): Maher Mohammed Aldemerdash
Faced with the long waiting list for a kidney transplant, the use of donors with expanded criteria, like polycystic kidneys, is an option that aims to increase in a short time the supply of kidneys for transplant. Here we present of a patient with end stage renal failure and limited vascular access who received a deceased donor kidney from a 33-year-old who develop intracranial hemorrhage who likely had undiagnosed Polycystic Kidney Disease. The transplant went uneventful and showed promising results, and the recipient ended up with a good renal function. The option of using donors with polycystic kidneys is safe and gives good results.
