Renal Transplantation Assessment Program (living donor)

Renal Transplantation Assessment Program (living donor) has become the treatment of choice for most patients with advanced stages of renal disease or End Stages of Renal Disease (ESRD). Marked improvements in early graft survival and long-term graft function have made kidney transplantation a more cost-effective alternative, and less cumbersome to dialysis procedures.

To qualify for such procedure, the following assessment test and investigations:

1- Cuba only offers kidney transplants from living donors whereby the donor must be a blood relative of the patient (parents, siblings, and children) and must be 18 years old or above.

2- The patient and donor must remain in Cuba for the duration of the following two phases:
– Phase I: This phase requires 15 days of hospitalization and would include the following:
• Extensive haematological and diagnostic tests which will include
• Urological Research
• Images evaluation
– Phase II: This phase requires 28 of hospitalization for the recipient and 14 days of hospitalization for the donor

The Renal Transplantation Assessment Program (recipient and donor) living donor program includes the following:
