Caption: Kidney transplant. Image 7 of 17. Storage box for a donor kidney for transplant. Donor kidneys, if kept cold and sterile, can remain viable outside of the body for several days. Kidneys are transplanted to replace a failing or failed kidney. It is the safest and most commonly performed organ transplant. It has a high success rate, although recipients do need to take immunosuppressant drugs for the rest of their life to prevent rejection. The donor kidney may come from a living or recently deceased donor. For a sequence of images showing a kidney transplant see M575/068 to M575/084.
