    The article comments on a study published within the issue which evaluated the merits of cadaveric lobar lung transplantation (CLLT) for severe donor-recipient (DR) discordance. Findings showed that CLLT is a good option with comparable survival rate with lung transplantation for DR discordance....

    Introduction: There is a chronic shortage of cadaveric organ donors for renal transplantation, which might be solved by the use of non-heart-beating donors (patients who suffer cardiac arrest and whose kidneys are harvested subsequently when irreversible heart and respiratory function occur)....

    OBJECTIVE: In the UK, the number of patients waiting for an organ transplant has increased by 30% since 2001. Non-heart beating organ donation (NHBD) programmes are advocated as a means of increasing the number of potential donors. Such programmes remain in their infancy within paediatrics. We...

  • Do the sick have a right to cadaveric organs? Glannon, W. // Journal of Medical Ethics;Jun2003, Vol. 29 Issue 3, p153 

    One way of increasing the supply of organs for transplantation is to adopt a policy giving the sick a right to cadaveric organs. Such a right would entail the coercive transfer of organs from the dead without their previous consent. Because this policy would violate individual autonomy and the...

  • Non-heart organ donation: old procurement strategy. Bell, M.D.D. // Journal of Medical Ethics;Jun2003, Vol. 29 Issue 3, p176 

    The imbalance between supply of organs for transplantation and demand for them is widening. Although the current international drive to re-establish procurement via non-heart beating organ donation/donor (NHBOD) is founded therefore on necessity, the process may constitute a desirable outcome...

    The global shortage of organs for transplantation and the development of new and better medical technologies for organ preservation have resulted in a renewed interest in non-heart-beating donation (NHBD). This article discusses ethical questions related to controlled and uncontrolled NHBD. It...

  • Truthfulness in transplantation: non-heart-beating organ donation. Potts, Michael // Philosophy, Ethics & Humanities in Medicine;2007, Vol. 2, p17 

    The current practice of organ transplantation has been criticized on several fronts. The philosophical and scientific foundations for brain death criteria have been crumbling. In addition, donation after cardiac death, or non-heartbeating-organ donation (NHBD) has been attacked on grounds that...

  • Cadaver Renal Transplantation in Children. Tejani, Amir; Fine, Richard N. // Clinical Pediatrics;Apr1993, Vol. 32 Issue 4, p194 

    In North America, about 50% of all renal transplants done in children are from a living-related donor source — a figure two and a half times greater than the comparative figure for Europe. Graft survival in children is lower for cadaveric donor (CD) than for living-related donor (LRD)...

    Major improvements in immunosuppressive treatment, surgical techniques, and treatment of post-transplant complications have contributed considerably to improved outcome in renal transplantation over the past decades. Yet, these accomplishments have not led to similar improvements in transplant...
