Mayo Clinic Radio: Paired Kidney Donation
Paired donation, also known as "paired exchange," may be an option when a donor and intended recipient have incompatible blood types, or when the recipient has unacceptable antibodies against the donor's tissue antigens. In paired donation, two or more organ recipient pairs trade donors, so that the recipients get organs that are compatible with their blood type. A nondirected living donor also can participate in paired donation to match incompatible pairs.
