Transplantology is an operation when organs or tissues are transplanted according to medical indications.
It can be divided into two big categories – transplantation of organs taken from living donors (relatives) and also transplantation of organs taken from cadaveric donor.
About one hundred thousand transplantations are performed annually. About 26 thousands of them are kidney transplantations, 2,7- 4,5 thousands – heart, 8-10 thousands – liver, one thousand – pancreas, 1,5 thousands – lungs.
Transplantation of organs taken from cadaveric donor is forbidden in many countries of the world and this is a reason for considerable increase of the list of those who need this operation because the amount of donors decreases significantly.
The problem of the removal of cadaveric organs is primarily related to the issues of legal and ethical qualities. For example, in the USA and many European countries, the principle of "consent of the requested" works, this means that the usage of a person’s organs without his legally formalized permission is forbidden, so the doctor is not entitled to do the removal. A presumption of consent to the removal of organs works in our country so the law permits the removal of cadaveric organs, but on condition that the deceased person during his lifetime, or his relatives have not expressed their opposition to it.
The transplantations of organs from relatives and of cadaveric organs are performed in the Republic of Belarus. That is why Belarusian clinics are so popular among people all over the world. The transplantations of bone marrow, kidney, heart, liver are performed in our country, tissue transplantations and stem cells transplantations are performed as well.
An important factor is work experience of course. For example, the National Center for Organ and Tissue Transplantation has performed 109 heterotopic renal transplantations and 70 orthotopic liver transplantations since 2010, mortality is less than 0.7% (only one patient died). Our country is on the first place among the CIS member states in the number of transplantations performed per one million of inhabitants.
The Belarusian health care system gained an impulse for the development of organ transplantation due to the strengthening of material-technical base and the equipment of health centers.
