Abstract

Medical and technological progress have made kidney transplants an effective, alternative therapy to dialysis for patients suffering from chronic kidney failure. Transplantation improves the quality of life of these patients significantly; however, waiting lists are long and this is because of the attitude of the general public to organ donation, not a lack of medical expertise. In fact, the only limiting factor in kidney transplant is the opposition to donation expressed by the deceased or family members. Herein we outline the distribution of patients on the kidney transplant waiting list in the Regional Transplant Centre for Abruzzo and Molise in L'Aquila, Italy, and highlight the reasons why patients are withdrawn from the list, the main reason being a deterioration in patient condition after long periods of dialysis.
