Along with the wide application of cadaveric donor kidney transplantation (CDKT), most transplantation centers face the shortage of cadaveric donors. Living donor kidney transplantation (LDKT) has been successfully applied with remarkable advantages over CDKT. Human leukocyte antigen matching generally is not an important problem in non-related LDKT. Even with 6-locus mismatch, the effectiveness of LDKT is still superior to non-mismatch CDKT. Although LDKT donor has extremely low mortality and incidence of complications, the safety of LDKT donor is becoming a research highlight. In addition, many social problems are involved in LDKT, which should be deliberately considered during clinical practice.
