Nephrectomy after injury or dysfunctional kidney (e.g. hydronephrosis from childhood)
Nephrolithiasis (kidney stones)
Polycystic kidney disease
UNACCEPTABLE if progressive disease and / or global renal function is impaired.
PERMANENT DEFERRAL if progressive disease and / or global renal function substantially impaired.
Otherwise, according to clinical reasoning by the assessing physician, the donor could be eligible, temporarily unavailable or permanently deferred.
Evaluate carefully for absence of inflammatory (autoimmune or infectious) nephropathy. If there is a suspicion of an inflammatory nephropathy, but renal biopsy is not indicated, inform the requesting transplant centre and proceed if requested (bone marrow collection only).
Nephrolithiasis: Assess the type of kidney stones in the available medical history. Because of transient history of uric acid stones should be for bone marrow collection only.
Donors with progressive disease or global renal impairment may be at increased risk of adverse events associated with donation by either route.
Chronic infectious or autoimmune diseases, including (for example):
Donor / recipient
UNACCEPTABLE, PERMANENT DEFERRAL
Donors with chronic infectious or autoimmune disease may experience exacerbations of their disease as a result of donation. In addition, there is a risk of transmission of infectious agents or autoreactive lymphocytes to the recipient.
