1st Quarter 2021

The first quarter of 2021 concluded with the NKR setting a new monthly record of 105 transplants facilitated in March, surpassing the previous high of 91. As we go to press with this report, we have facilitated over 100 transplants in April, marking our first two months over 100. On the heels of the first two months of 2021, which saw transplants reduced to only 116 due to a high rate of swap failures, the recent volume spikes are an indication that the weight of the pandemic on living donor transplant is beginning to lift.
