About three percent of donor kidneys will have three or more arteries, and 13 percent of donor kidneys will have at least two arteries. Thus, what happens in many of these cases is that patients will be evaluated at other transplant centers and they will be told that they cannot donate their kidney because there are multiple arteries in both kidneys and there's too much risk associated with performing the surgery.   However, at the University of Maryland Medical Center, we accept these types of donors because we have the expertise and surgical techniques to proceed with this type of case.
