Indian Doctors Agree to Promote Cadaveric Organ Transplantation

Ahmedabad: The Indian Society for Organ Transplantation had its annual meet, ISOT 2006 in Ahmedabad. In a panel discussion//, leading transplant surgeons from across the country got together to deliberate on ways to promote cadaveric (or deceased) organ donation and transplantation in the country.

Depending on age and organ function, deceased organ donors can donate their heart, lungs, pancreas, liver and kidneys.

Speaking at the occasion, Dr Sunil Shroff (SRMC and MOHAN Foundation, Chennai) said, “We appreciate the eye donation drive in Gujarat. Donors in Gujarat number between 4000 – 5000 out of the 16000 donations done in the country. The key now lies in focussing on multi-organ retrieval. Furthermore, organs should be treated as a national resource. We need to form a strong Indian network and request Gujarat to join the Indian Network for Organ Sharing facilitated by MOHAN Foundation.”

According to Dr Aarti Vij, (ORBO, New Delhi), “The need of the hour is to increase donors and transplant centres. There are soc
