To accept or not accept: Patients want a say in liver transplant decisions

15 julio 2014

More than half of liver transplant patients want to be informed of donor risk at the time a liver is offered for transplantation, a novel study has shown. Nearly 80% of those patients want to be involved in the decision of whether or not to accept the organ according to findings. There is a shortage of available donor organs, which leaves many on the liver transplant waiting list. Currently, there are more than 16,000 patients in need of a liver in the U.S.
