Kidney transplantation is the best therapeutic
option for patients with chronic renal failure.
Access to transplantation may be limited by
immunological barriers, clinical conditions or
technical complexity. Transplanting the difficult

patient is always challenging, and success can
only be achieved by combining experience and
innovation. Barcelona’s Hospital Clinic has
performed the first kidney transplant in Spain
in 1965 and has been pioneering and
innovating in kidney transplantation ever since.
