Organ Transplant

What is Organ Transplant?

The process of collecting and storing organs and tissues for people who have organ failure for any reason and transferring them to the patient from donors or cadavers by the provisions of the organ transplant law is called "organ transplantation." Organ transplants can be performed from a cadaver as well as from a living donor. Organs such as liver, kidneys, heart, lungs, corneas, muscle tissue, face and scalp, bones, upper respiratory tract, and small intestine are within the scope of transplantation.

Organ transplantation is currently the most effective treatment for many patients suffering from organ failure.

There are two types of procedures in organ transplantation:

Organ transplantation from a cadaver to a living person: Due to the insufficient level of organ donations, patients in need of organs are placed in a national ranking system depending on the urgency of their condition. The transplantation decision is made if there is a compatibility with the blood type and tissues. The organ found to be suitable is brought within a maximum of 4 to 12 hours under appropriate storage conditions to the center where the transplant will be performed, and the organ transplant team in the center carries out the procedure.

Organ transplantation from a living donor: This procedure is performed between donors who agree to donate living organs and patients with end-stage renal failure who need transplantation. To determine whether the donor candidate is suitable, tests for tissue compatibility and blood type are performed, and the organ transplantation process is started after deciding that they can be a medically appropriate donor.

In the last 30 years, most of the advances in medicine have been observed in organ transplantation, and the most significant developments in the future are expected to occur in this field, too. Turkey has experience in organ transplantation that can compete with the world's. MEDICANA has been successfully serving in organ transplantation with its expert medical personnel.
