The procedure which is called , `Splenic Radiation and Plasmapheresis,' enables patients with renal failure to accept kidneys from donors whose blood group does not match. "Through this technique we temporarily blind the function of the spleen that otherwise rejects the kidney from a high risk donor," P. Ravichandran, head, Nephrology and Transplantation, Kidney Disease and Institute of Organ Transplantation, and a member of the team, said at a press conference in Chennai.
