KDIGO Logo transparentThis webinar is part of a Webinar Series organised with KDIGO.

The webinar will review the new 2016 Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) guidelines in living kidney donation. It will seek to understand the strengths and limitations of a new modeling technique that provides an empirical framework to assess risk in living kidney donor candidates and appreciate the findings of a new study which examines long-term pregnancy outcomes after living kidney donation.


Description of the Webinar

For the millions of people with kidney failure worldwide, the importance of transplantation cannot be overstated. Tragically, many people who would benefit from a kidney transplant do not receive one. Worldwide, countries are urged to meet the demand for transplantable kidneys by increasing living kidney donor activity. Concurrent efforts to understand and study long-term donor health are vital to a safe system of practice.
