The most effective treatment for kidney failure that is currently known is transplantation. As the number of cadaveric donors is not sufficient and kidneys from living donors are often not suitable for immunological reasons, there are attempts to organize exchanges between patient-donor pairs. In this paper we model this situation as a cooperative game and propose some algorithms for finding a solution.
