Organ Donation and Transplantation
In organ donation, organ or tissue is surgically removed from the body of one person i.e. the organ donor and place it into another person i.e. the recipient. As the recipient’s organ fails to function or is damaged by a disease or injury, transplantation becomes necessary. It is possible that the donor and the recipient are at the location or else organ can be transported from donor’s location to another site.
Today, organ transplantation is one of the greatest advances in medical sector. Organs or tissues that are transplanted within the same person’s body are called Autografts and transplant between two persons is called Allografts. Sadly, need for organ donor in the world is much more than the number of people who actually donate.
Who can be an Organ Donor?
A potential organ donor can be a living person of any age, dead via circulatory death or brain dead. The Organ Procurement Agency determines medical suitability for donation. Tissues recovered from donors who die of circulatory death, as well as of brain death – up to 24 hours past the cessation of heartbeat can be stored and preserved for up to five years whereas, organs cannot be stored for long.

Organ Transplantation Success
India has a remarkable reputation for successful transplant outcomes, both in terms of the number of organs that are able to be transplanted from each donor and survival rates of the recipients receiving the organ.
