The Hospital of the Federal District (HBDF) held on 22 February, the thousandth kidney transplantation by living and deceased donors. The patient was receiving retired Vania Lucia Lopes, 49, who suffered from chronic renal failure. The donor's family, who lives in Mexico City, approved the transplant after brain death of the patient.

With over this highly complex surgery, Brasilia works to consolidate itself as a national reference in transplants. The expectation of the Health Secretary, Rafael Barbosa, is that the capital is, by the end of 2012, among the four best units in the country in funding and organ donation.

For nearly 20 years are registered organ donations in the DF. The average monthly collection of kidneys from deceased donors is three, according to Funding Central Organ of the DF. Therefore, are performed approximately every six months transplants.

The coordinator of the Central Organ Uptake, Daniel Solomon, explains that the number of donations has grown since 2004: in 2011 only had 29 donors, and this year, expectations are exceeded over the last year.

The estimate is based on satisfactory performance of donations in the first two months of the year with a record of nine donors. Since January 84 transplants were performed, 57 of cornea, 15 kidneys, five of seven liver and heart. The waiting list for heart transplants was reset.

Another achievement in the field of transplantation was reached in November last year, with accreditation from the DF to perform liver transplants by the Unified Health System (SUS). The effort now is to consolidate the procedure in the capital. We are looking for people who requested treatment outside the home and scoring consultations with medical staff. The goal is to enable the transfer of registration of the public (in queue) for the DF again, says Daniel Solomon.
