Tests performed for kidney transplant recipient

Routine blood and imaging tests performed for the kidney transplant recipient are completed within two or three days before transplantation.

Cardiological examinations  such as recent echocardiography are evaluated. Further investigations may be required in cases such as tuberculosis or a similar infectious disease, kidneys leading to frequent infections, policystic kidneys, hepatitis B or C.

Existing diseases should be carefully evaluated before transplantation to ensure everything goes smoothly after kidney transplantation.
