Abstract

Organ transplantation has become the standard of care for treatment of end stage organ failure patients medically suitable for transplantation. Unfortunately, the availability of transplantable organs has not been able to meet the high demand. The organ shortage of transplantation has become worldwide and a national crisis. Despite various attempts to expand the donor pool, the difference between organ supply and organ demand continues. This article reviews methods to increase the number of potential deceased organ donor and the number of organs per donor by aggressive donor management protocol.
