Renal transplantation improves quality of life and reduces morbidity for patients with established renal failure (ERF). Living donor transplant is an altruistic gesture that allows preemptive transplant of patients with ERF and is associated with better graft and recipient outcome than cadaveric transplant. To ensure optimal results for donor and recipient, a cohesive, evidence based, team approach to their care is essential. © 2011 Rila Publications Ltd.
