Grow taller 4 idiots review - The Good Samaritan move three kidneys

Apr 30th 2011 at 7:38 AM

Good Samaritan, two hospitals, three patients awaiting a kidney transplant and the wives of two of them. These ingredients have resulted in the first kidney transplant chain made in Spain and the first of any kind in which we have used an altruistic donor organ.

Only with this step and we would be faced with a new Spanish transplant system, which until now had only live transplants between related persons (family or, at best, friends), but two cases of cross-transplantation: a member of a couple donates a kidney to a member of another, and vice versa. There were two more. The six involved in this chain, three donors and three recipients are already out of hospitals.

"By giving, I give more than I get," says the good Samaritan in a recording released by the Ministry of Health. "I feel lighter." The priest, who was in prison - "for administrative reasons, not criminal" - in Latin America, heard talk there of organ trafficking, which led him to make the decision to volunteer as a donor.

Following this selfless gesture, the wife of the first transplant in turn gave one of his kidneys. This body was transported to Granada, where a man was waiting in the hospital Virgen de las Nieves. In return, the patient's wife Granada won an organ, who flew to Barcelona, ​​said Antonio Osuna, director of the Andalusian. There he was introduced to a woman who was three and a half years waiting for a cadaveric organ. "I won the lottery," said the head of the National Transplant Organization (ONT), Rafael Matesanz, who appeared together with the Minister of Health, Leire Pajin. Not only because it has received a kidney, but because studies indicate that living donor organs work better than cadaver.

The process was originally designed to involve more people and more communities, said Matesanz. Up to five links in the chain. What happened was that some candidates were not compatible, and would have interrupted the process, Guirado said.

The two figures involved, the Good Samaritan and transplantation-chain are the latest developments in these processes, for maintaining the high rate of Spanish grants and does not increase the waiting list, which is around 4,500 people "in a stable manner," said Matesanz . Until recently, Spain had not encouraged, but this was accounted United States, United Kingdom and Holland, mainly because the rate of cadaveric donors is the highest in the world. But despite this leadership is stagnant or in decline: in 2010 reached the 32 per million, double that of the EU, but less than 34.4 in 2009, according to the ONT.

This fall, albeit small, following a decade in which the rate is stabilized around the 34, mainly due to declining donor deaths in traffic accidents. These have increased from 43% of donors in 1992 to 5.7% in 2010. And with that, there has been a gradual aging: the current average age is 56.7 years donors (in 1992 was 34.5). In fact, Matesanz said this year had used organs from a deceased at age 93.

35 people have offered to donate a kidney altruistically -19 of them have been rejected because of psychological problems (1) and health (18). Not respond to a clear profile as Matesanz. This is a pattern "diffuse", said there are 16 to 70 years, both men and women, and even someone of another religion "is not Catholic," he said. The requirements are in addition to passing a mental check to make sure the person is able to decide, and that an ethics committee admits, the same as for any living donor (so far only made so directed: a father to a son, a brother to another, between spouses) have no risk factors such as hypertension, obesity, diabetes or stones.
