Abstract

To be or not to be a live kidney donor: A parent’s personal principle - cause for patient’s death In the cultural and bioethical process of attitude change towards live donor kidney transplant, how could personal character-principles be a destructive change agent with detrimental impact upon a daughter’s life, after his refusal to be the only compatible live donor? The refusal to save the 27 year old life resulted in her death. Research examines real data: parental impact upon the family-belief-system of his child, and later upon her death. Case study: Lupus Nephritis final stage renal failure patient (from age 15), on dialysis for 11 years. Controversial findings point to personal ethical and cultural convictions that prioritized concerns about marital stability and family reaction, to life of his daughter from first marriage. General data is given on Macedonian recent increase in kidney transplants from live donors, as a positive context juxtaposed with loss of life resulting from self-centered value systems and rejection of daughter’s plea for his kidney. Sequence of events leading to patient’s death at age 27 are documented in hospital and health care environment settings. ​ ​
