The best treatment available is renal transplantation. living donor renal transplant is superior to cadaveric transplant ation. If no living donor are available u have to enroll in cadaveric programme waiting list . untill then she has to be dialsyed.

The first step you have to take is to have a AV FISTULA access created for her for mainatanance hemodialysis.It matures in 6 weeks. Then u can think about renal transplantation because u cannot predict when she may become breathless and unstable. Better to start her on hemodialysis before she is breathless .
