Abstract

This paper provides a framework for web implementation of the different matching algorithms for two way kidney paired donation (KPD). The first accept match, weighted Edmond’s algorithm and optimized matching algorithm are used to test the matching process in KPD. The results of matching algorithms are obtained in terms of number of matches (transplants) that can be made between incompatible patient donor pairs. Also, currently in India, only cadaver transplant program (CTP) and live related donations are legally acceptable. Hence, this study indicates that the number of patients on waiting list can be enormously decreased, if KPD is legalized in India.
