Kidney transplant for Daniel Westling

Crown Princess Victoria's fiancé Daniel Westling today had a kidney transplant at Karolinska sjukhuset in Solna outside Stockholm. According to the Swedish royal court the need for a transplant had been known for a long time and the reason for the surgery was "a congenital but not inherited disease causing impaired renal function".
