Bizarre news, no need to donate organs till the time you are alive. A recent finding has detailed that a person doesn’t need to donate organ till the time they are alive or until the demand has been put forth by a family member or friend. It has been reported that the rate of living donations has increased drastically, as a result in due course of time, these organs show no activity and remain dull and sluggish.
With better technologies and science advancing, the major hurdle of compatibility has been achieved. In many cases, where in past transplantations could not be accomplished due blood-type miss-match or due to antibodies of recipients that will fight foreign ones and will reject the organ, all these difficulties have been abolished.
Another approach to organ donation was the introduction of the Kidney exchange Program, under which, there is a chain of donors and recipients and on the basis of best matched pair, donation and receiving is accomplished.
However, it has been discovered that although the non-living donations are much in demand in comparison to living donations, still living donations have a few advantages over the non-living ones. Among the few enlisted is that a patient doesn’t need to wait for long to be assisted with the donated organ. Moreover, there are very less chances of the organ to be rejected by the receipt body.
The University of Virginia Health System runs a body that calls on all those interested in donating an organ and even helps those who are in a need of an organ. The system at UVA till now has many stories of success to its credits. It has a big chain of physicians, social workers and psychologists who assist a donor very well.
