Kidney paired donation is the most cost-effective approach in incompatible donor-recipient pairs. Incompatibility may be due to blood group, human leucocyte antigen crossmatch or both. In many cases of a living donor kidney transplant, there is only one potential donor who becomes unsuitable due to any of the above mentioned factors. In kidney paired donation, donor-recipient pairs are exchanged to sort out the incompatibility. We report our first successful three-way kidney exchange transplantation from North India. As deceased donor program is still in evolving stage in most parts of our country and transplant with desensitization protocol is associated with financial constraints, infections, and lack of availability in many centers, kidney paired donation is a valuable approach to expand the donor pool.
