Organ Donation with Living Related Donors with Cancer
Kidney transplantation is currently considered a routine treatment of chronic renal failure. Nevertheless, in spite of its expansion nowadays, it has grown mostly in the highly developed countries where there is good organization and effective organ sharing. Less developed countries such as those in Eastern Europe are significantly behind in the application of cadaveric kidney transplantation, either as a result of the bad organization of the transplantation service or because of a lack of legal rules for organ donation. On the other hand, the number of candidates for chronic hemodialysis treatment is increasing almost equally in all countries, and, thus, the need for kidney transplantation is equal, too (Tufveson et al. 1989).
