This review describes the ScandiaTransplant Kidney Exchange Programme and the background of renal exchange programmes gaining popularity worldwide, possibilities and limitations of the programmes, the ethical aspects and perspectives. The first kidney exchanges between Danish and Swedish countries were performed in 2019, and until now 23 exchanges and transplantations have been performed. All surgical procedures have been performed simultaneously and/or coordinated at different hospitals in Scandinavia, and the kidney grafts were transported between the participating units.
