End-stage kidney disease reached several important anniversaries in 1980. It was the 30-year anniversary of the first successful clinical hemodialysis and the 25-year anniversary of the first successful kidney transplant between identical twins. In addition, it was 20 years after the first successful non-identical twin transplant—approximately 35,000 people have received kidney transplants in the United States.
