Algorithms for Paired and Altruistic Kidney Donation in the UK

Abstract: A patient who requires a kidney transplant, and who has a willing but incompatible donor, may be able to 'swap' his or her donor with that of another patient in a similar situation. The UK Living Kidney Sharing Schemes (UKLKSS), run by the National Health Service Blood and Transplant, aim to find optimal sets of 'kidney exchanges' involving incompatible donor-patient pairs and also altruistic (non-directed) donors in the UK. In this talk we describe the computational techniques that we have used in order to construct optimal sets of exchanges for quarterly matching runs of the UKLKSS since July 2008. We also provide an overview of outcomes, showing the numbers of transplants that have been identified and that have proceeded from these runs.
