The Efficiency of Organ Exchange Rules in a 7-Million Population

Summary

The suitability of organ exchange rules were analysed retrospectively in a country with a population of 7 million not connected to international organ sharing organisations following the opening of a national coordination centre 2 years previously The results demonstrate that the sharing rules work frictionless and efficiently, and that compulsory registration of every organ donor (cadaveric and living) guarantees entire transparency of organ source and exchange, therefore preventing any illegal activity An inac-ceptably high mortality rate for patients awaiting a highly urgent organ (specifically heart or liver) shows that connection to an international organ exchange organisation is desirable in this respect.
