Second Chance for Kidney Transplant Recipient

A 42-year-old woman who had experienced kidney transplant failure 3 years earlier approached Duke’s Kidney Transplant Program seeking a second transplant.

Duke agreed to evaluate her medical condition.

Question: How did the Duke transplant team enable the patient to safely undergo and recover from a kidney transplant?
