The article analyzes the attitude towards living kidney (LKD) and liver (LLD) donation among hospital professionals in the cadaveric donor procurement unites of Spain and Latin America. It focuses on the importance to promote living donation because there are not enough organ donations in covering the needs of transplants. It states that cadaveric donor procurement units play a key part to promote organ transplants which could do the same to develop living donations.
