Organ Donation and Transplantation

Transplants involve the donation of organs from one person to another and are the best possible treatment for most people with organ failure. Kidney transplants are the most commonly performed. Transplants of the heart, liver and lungs are also regularly carried out. As medicine advances, other vital organs including the pancreas and small bowel are being used in transplants. Tissue such as corneas, heart valves, skin and bone can also be donated. New York Times analysis of major organ trafficking cases since 2000 suggests that Israeli organ brokers have played disproportionate role in global organ trade. The UK has performed its first successful organ transplants from a newborn baby. The donor was a 6-day-old baby girl who was born with severe brain damage. The doctors say thanks to the "extreme generosity" of the parents; a patient with kidney failure has received their baby's kidneys and another sick patient has received her liver cells.
