3 Current status of renal transplantation D. N. H. Hamilton and J. D. 1 LIVING WITH RENAL FAILURE INTRODUCTION In an ideal transplanter's world any patient on regular dialysis would prefer an offer of a living donor transplant or a well-matched healthy cadaver kidney. In the real world organizational and immunological problems prevent this ideal, and clinical compromise is essential. Even renal physicians, who are unhappy about renal transplantation, are forced by economic and organizational problems to accept transplantation in order to increase the number of patients treated because of limited dialysis capacity.

Few units use perfusion machines as the original claims of improved kidney function and ability to be able to discriminate damaged kidneys as a result of using such machines have met a sceptical response. While it is true that the use of the preservation machine can allow transplant surgery to be carried out at leisure during office hours, most units still find it suitable to transplant within 12 hours of donation. Perfusion machines also require trained supervision, though the latest Gambro machine has many simplifications.
