Abstract

The evaluation of transplant candidates should be directed to ensuring that the risks of surgery and immunosuppression are acceptable. The evaluation should also attempt to determine the likelihood of the graft functioning well enough and long enough to improve the quality of life of the recipient. The primary goal in the evaluation of a potential living donor is to ensure the donor's safety. Both the short- and long-term risks of donation need to be carefully assessed.
