One of the most interesting and at the same time most challenging fields of medicine and surgery has been that of organ donation and transplantation. It is a field that has made tremendous strides during the last few decades through the combined input and efforts of scientists from various specialties. What started as a dream of pioneers has become a reality for the thousands of our patients whose lives can now be saved and improved. However, at the same time, the challenges remain significant and so do the expectations. This book will be a collection of chapters describing these same challenges involved including the ethical, legal, and medical issues in organ donation and the technical and immunological problems the experts are facing involved in the care of these patients.The authors of this book represent a team of true global experts on the topic. In addition to the knowledge shared, the authors provide their personal clinical experience on a variety of different aspects of organ donation and transplantation.

Regulations Regarding Living Organ Donation in Europe

Regulations Regarding Living Organ Donation in Europe

This book analyses whether the national legal regulations are also partly responsible for the organ shortage in the Member States of the European Union.

Organ transplantation is a much-discussed subject, and the importance of living organ donation is increasing significantly. Yet despite all efforts, too few donor organs are available to help all patients in need. This book analyses whether the national legal regulations are also partly responsible for the organ shortage in the Member States of the European Union. In addition to a detailed analysis of the various national regulations, the main arguments in favour of and against legal restrictions on living organ donation are considered. Furthermore, the European Union’s authority is investigated, namely, whether it is entitled to establish statutory provisions for the Member States with respect to a harmonized regulation of living organ donation. Based on the results of the analysis, the author establishes a Best Practice Proposal for living organ donation.

The supply of organs for people that need them through organ donation is not enough to satisfy the demand. Some people go to foreign countries like Poland, Thailand or India to buy an organ. Some organs can only be donated from a deceased person. Others come from living people like kidneys and bone marrow. Some day, all organs will be synthetic but not yet. This is a simple guide about organ donation-transplantation. Organ transplant is the process of replacing diseased organs with healthy ones. After that, the patient must take anti-reaction drugs for life. You can donate a few organs and still keep the body intact for a funeral or you can donate the body completely. You receive no pay although some places now are buying people's bodies in advance for when they die.

This second edition of the introduction to the field of organ transplantation provides an excellent overview of the tremendous progress made in recent decades, and gives a clear description of the current status of transplant surgery for students and trainees with an interest in this field. It opens with introductory chapters on the history of transplantation and the basic science of immunobiology, and then examines through an organ-based structure the practice of transplantation in each major system, from skin to intestine. There is a 13-year gap between the first and second edition, and this is highlighted in the new collection of chapters of this updated version. This is a timely publication produced in line with the rapidly advancing field of transplantation. The editor, Nadey S Hakim, is a consultant transplant and general surgeon at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, London, England, and has put together this second volume that will serve as an invaluable guide for transplant surgeons as well as trainees.

The evolution of medicine is one of the outstanding features of the past century. The progress achieved by organ transplants is particularly important in this regard. Transplant medicine has progressed massively, but, due to insufficient social donation responses, waiting patient lists increase and the sad consequences of this reality persist indefinitely. This book provides a thorough analysis of the problems presented by organ transplants and social behaviour. It interprets the evolution of transplantation, and its associated medical, ethical-legal, psychosocial and religious problems, as well as educational proposals that have accompanied this medical practice over time. It will serve to provide, at all societal levels, the possibility of a clear understanding of this serious health crisis.

This book brings together researchers from three different continents who present different perspectives on the complex issue of organ donation. Several important authors have contributed to this edited book on organ donation discussing the phenomenon from different aspects, particularly the psychological, medico-legal, religious and communications perspectives. Some of the authors have not only studied these questions academically, but they themselves are live organ donors or organ recipients as well. The chapters by Cole, Camilleri-Zahra, Schweda and Wolhke, Siegel, Anker and Jansen give importance to the voice of organ donors, recipients and their families. They discuss the dilemmas which donors, recipients and their families face when they come to learn that a family member needs an organ transplant, and the subsequent difficult decisions that have to be made by the recipients, possible donors and family members. The phases before and after the donation of organs are as important as the donation itself. Fear, guilt and other strong emotions are intrinsic to the donation process both in live donation as well as in cadaveric donation. The psychological and health challenges presented by organ donation, discussed by Lauri, Maloney, Walker and Charlton, Shanteau and Hyde, are compounded by legal, religious and cultural issues, which will also be discussed in different chapters of the book by Ellul, Borg and Reinhart. Finally, the chapters by Alvaro, Feeley and Yang discuss how the media can influence and inform public attitudes towards organ donation and discuss how it can help increase the number of organ donors. This book is meant for those who, in some way, come in contact with people who need an organ transplant and those who have to help people come to reach informed decisions.

"Organ donors are, by definition, altruists, and their act is even more generous when they remain anonymous. But altruism doesn't tell the whole story. There are myriad motivations, some subconscious, some conscious, that compel people to donate a part of themselves to someone they don't know. The Organ Donor Experience uncovers the desires, personalities and motivations of Good Samaritan organ donors and reveals much about the process of donating an organ to a needy recipient"--Provided by publisher.

Transplantation has succeeded in prolonging the lives of those fortunate enough to have received the gift of a body organ. Alongside this life-saving development, there lies another sadder side to the story - there are not enough organs to meet the ever increasing demand. This not only places an increasing emotional and physical burden among the waiting patients and families but heaps a great financial burden upon health services. This book provides an analysis and overview of public policy developments and clinical developments that will hopefully ensure an increased availability of organs and greater graft survival. Medical, policy, and academic experts from around the world have contributed chapters to the book.

Living Donor Organ Transplantation

Living Donor Organ Transplantation

This book was originally published in 1999. When one or more essential organs failed, the consequence used to be death. However, conventional medicine has developed artificial means of extending life, the most successful of which is transplantation. The most common form of organ to be transplanted is a kidney which will, on average, function for about a decade in its recipient. Organ transplantation as a whole is widely practiced in most countries. However, few can procure enough organs to meet demand. Many people who are suitable for a transplant die without getting one. Many kidney patients can access and stay alive on dialysis until a suitable organ becomes available. However, even here, sufficiency of organs would be beneficial because lesser reliance on dialysis would reduce healthcare costs and be better for patient quality of life. This invaluable book shows that in the light of current practice and attitudes, increasing living donor transplantation (LDT) levels is feasible. It is one of the few works to systematically analyse the ethical and legal issues involved in LDT use in the light of empirical evidence, including new data derived from a unique programme of interviews and questionnaires with transplant professionals, living donors and recipients. Readers are led to an understanding of when LDT is ethically and legally acceptable and to the strong case for using it much more extensively.

Opportunities for Organ Donor Intervention Research

Opportunities for Organ Donor Intervention Research

Opportunities for Organ Donor Intervention Research focuses on the ethical, legal, regulatory, policy, and organizational issues relevant to the conduct of research in the United States involving deceased organ donors.

The organ donation and transplantation system strives to honor the gift of donated organs by fully using those organs to save and improve the quality of the lives of their recipients. However, there are not enough donated organs to meet the demand and some donated organs may not be recovered, some recovered organs may not be transplanted, and some transplanted organs may not function adequately. Organ donor intervention research can test and assess interventions (e.g., medications, devices, and donor management protocols) to maintain or improve organ quality prior to, during, and following transplantation. The intervention is administered either while the organ is still in the deceased donor or after it is recovered from the donor but before it is transplanted into a recipient. Organ donor intervention research presents new challenges to the organ donation and transplantation community because of ethical questions about who should be considered a human subject in a research study, whose permission and oversight are needed, and how to ensure that such research does not threaten the equitable distribution of a scarce and valuable resource. Opportunities for Organ Donor Intervention Research focuses on the ethical, legal, regulatory, policy, and organizational issues relevant to the conduct of research in the United States involving deceased organ donors. This report provides recommendations for how to conduct organ donor intervention research in a manner that maintains high ethical standards, that ensures dignity and respect for deceased organ donors and their families, that provides transparency and information for transplant candidates who might receive a research organ, and that supports and sustains the public's trust in the process of organ donation and transplantation.

One Gently Used Kidney, Free to a Good Home. When 48 year-old single mother, massage therapist and returning student Ellie meets a young woman with kidney disease, she decides to make it her mission to save the girl. Unfortunately outdated rules made it difficult for altruistic donors and besides, the woman doesn't want a savior. Does this stop Ellie from her quest to "be the change" one seeks in the world? Not a chance. Told with humor and self-reflection, this inspirational memoir of courage and compassion is interwoven with anecdotal stories that help the reader identify what kind of person commits the selfless act of organ donation. Ellie, a self-described devout agnostic, is kind but often irreverent. She is generous, but she is no saint. Ultimately, becoming a kidney donor has given her a renewed sense of purpose and fulfillment. Lost in Transplantation asserts that we are all capable of altering a human being's life for the better, including our own.
