Combined Liver And Kidney Transplant
Combined Liver and Kidney Transplantation In Delhi
Combined Liver and Kidney Transplant (CLKT)
CLKT is performed routinely in patients with cirrhosis and associated kidney diseases. Most of these patients have chronic renal failure due to parenchymal kidney diseases, in most cases glomerulopathy associated with alcoholic cirrhosis, chronic hepatitis B or C infection, or chronic renal failure due to kidney rejection after kidney transplantation. Delayed kidney transplantation in combination with liver-kidney transplantation had better survival rates and overall outcomes, especially among those with a lower kidney donor profile.
