Cadaveric & living organ donation. Asian experience.
Ann Transplant. 2004; 9(1):74-7.AT

Abstract

The number of organ transplants performed in Asian countries during 2001 and 2002 are reported along with the present status of dialysis patients. Questionnaires were sent to key persons of each country where transplantation currently takes place. The total number of organ transplants is gradually decreasing, particularly those using cadaveric donors, while liver and lung transplantation using living donors are growing in Japan and Korea. Education and stimulation of the public is strongly requested to promote donation.
