    Abstract : The shortage of organs for transplantation is a global problem and therefore it is of outmost importance to increase the number of donations and improve long term graft survival. As an effort to increase kidney donations, living kidney donors are being increasingly used and both patient and graft survival is superior after living donation compared with kidney transplantations using organs from deceased donors.
