Kidney Transplant as an Outpatient Procedure

This ATC 2010, North Shore/LIJ Center of Kidney Transplantation presented an abstract about a 48 hour discharge kidney transplant program. A nice editorial on this can be seen in the most recent ASN Kidney News.  Selected patients with the right multi-team approach along with Nephrologists, Social workers and coordinators, this is very possible.
The re admission rate was low, complications were low along with a cost effective strategy.

Check it out at ASN Kidney News online version.
