Living Donation of kidneys and liver has been an important component of organ donation since the field’s inception. Living donation requires meticulous examination of potential donors, both to ensure the safety of the donor and assure that the organ is well suited to the recipient. These procedures must be done in a safe and highly reliable way to avoid short and long term complications for the donor. In this chapter, we review specific nuances and recovery techniques in living liver and living kidney donation procedures.
