Source of Cadaver Livers

Due to active organ donation campaign by organization such as ORBO and HOPE at New Delhi. The organ donation rate has increased remarkable since January 2003. As a result cadaver liver transplant have been carried out at the author's centre since Dec 2002. From the year 2006, there has been a significant increase in the rate of Cadaver donations from the Southeren part of India & the author has been successful in arranging such donations for a number of his patients.

The national rate of liver procurement in India is around 5 livers per year. Though 10-15 muliorgan donors are available per year nationally, not all of them are procured due to logistic reasons and lack of co-ordinated effort. At times due to logistic reasons chartered flights have to be arranged to procure livers outside Delhi. Though the potential for cadaver organ donation is quite large in India, due to lack of awareness about organ donation after death, poor ICU infrastructure, poor co-ordinate infrastructure and appropriate legislations to remove legal hassles in organ transportation around the country, the organ donation rates are set to remain poor for sometime to come.
