Donors in a paired exchange always travel to the transplant center of their actual recipient [31]. In Canada, some regulatory difficulties have stalled the widespread use of live donor kidney transports. Some of the earliest kidney exchanges occurred in Korean transplant programs, as well as the first known report of a donor hesitating to donate after his intended recipient had received a kidney transplant [5]. In those early days, researchers also had to address concerns that allografts from unrelated donors might not perform as well as those from related donors [32].

The LHV is then encircled with an umbilical tape. The left hepatic artery (LHA) is identified at the ligamentum teres and traced distally to where it enters the liver, 36 V. Gunabushanam et al. and proximally to the segment IV branch. The left portal vein (LPV) is mobilized along its extrahepatic course. The branches of the portal vein supplying segment IV are identified and divided. The umbilical tape previously passed around the LHV is brought in the ligamentum groove, and anteriorly to the LHA and LPV.

When the donations are performed in succession starting with a nondirected donor, there is less risk associated with nonsimultaneous operations. Because none of the donor operations in the chain occurs before the intended recipient of that donor has received a transplant, there is no way for a candidate to remain untransplanted after his bargaining chip, his intended donor, has already given a kidney. If a bridge donor decides not to donate, then the incompatible pairs farther down the chain can be matched into a different KPD arrangement, because every candidate still has his incompatible donor.
