Mayo Clinic Proceedings contributors discuss impact of donor organ allocation system
Date:2/6/2008

can make a patient ineligible for transplant, says Dr. Aranda-Michel.

In an editorial that follows, author Gennaro Selvaggi, M.D., from Miami Transplant Institute at the University of Miami, agrees that while the MELD system has proven to be valuable, those who are responsible for placing patients on transplant lists face many challenges.

One could argue that keeping a long list of active patients with low MELD scores could burden the system. However, many patients can experience a sudden decompensation of their liver disease, which would rapidly increase their MELD score, writes Dr. Selvaggi.

In the end, the most important concept advanced by Aranda-Michel is that patients should be referred early and followed up by a team of liver transplant specialists, writes Dr. Selvaggi.
