In a Canadian medical first, four people with end-stage renal disease received new kidneys from living donors Wednesday in simultaneous "kidney swap" operations in Vancouver, Edmonton and Toronto. This innovative and logistically complex "domino" transplant began when two donor-recipient pairs were wheeled into separate operating rooms at Toronto General Hospital, one pair at Edmonton's University of Alberta Hospital, and a fourth at St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver. Dr. Ed Cole, the head of the University Health Network's kidney transplant program in Toronto, joins us for a live discussion at 10:30 a.m. ET about this ground-breaking series of operations.
