Organ transplantation has become the treatment of choice for end stage organ failure in kidney, liver, heart and lung diseases. Compared to other life sustaining therapies, organ transplantation has prolonged survival and most importantly, enhanced the quality of life of individuals with advanced irreversible organ failure.
