Kidney Transplant

Conditions Leading to Kidney Transplant

At Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University, each potential transplant patient is evaluated individually by a team of experts to ensure the patient is healthy enough to survive transplant and will receive long-term benefits.

Common indications for kidney transplant include:
  • Malignant hypertension
  • Polycystic kidney disease
  • Hypertensive nephrosclerosis
  • Diabetes
  • Glomerular diseases
  • Renovascular and other vascular diseases
  • Congenital, familial and metabolic disorders
  • Tubular and interstitial diseases
  • Neoplasms

In 2010, Jonathan Sadowski became the first patient at Barnes-Jewish to receive a combined heart/kidney transplant, a new procedure allowing some patients after heart transplant to avoid dialysis.
