Cadaveric organ transplantation
Living related transplantation
Living related transplantation is possible for kidney and liver
transplantation. In Belgium, the living donor is required to be older than 18
years and somehow related to the recipient. In living related kidney
transplantation, one of the two kidneys of the donor is procured by
laparoscopic technique (with small surgical incisions). This lessinvasivesurgical
procedure allows postoperative pain reduction and shorter
hospital stay. In living related liver transplantation, a part of the donor
liver is resected. The resection volume is related to the recipient size.
These procedures might be risky for the donor. For liver donation, the
mortality risk has been evaluated at 0.5%, or one death every 200 donations.
