Organ transplantation is growing 54% in the first half.

The number of organ transplants performed in Paraná grew 54% in the first half, compared with the same period last year. From January to June, 190 transplants were made against 123 in the first half of 2011. The kidney was the procedure with the biggest increase with 88% more surgeries.

According to the coordinator of the Central State of Transplantation, Arlene Badoch, the increase is due largely to improvements in the uptake and transport of organs. "The teams are decentralized and organize the logistics of the search for donors in their area of ​​coverage." The Search Committee of Organs and Tissues for Transplantation (Copott) act in an active search for potential donors, in partnership with the Commissions Intra-Hospital Donation of Organs and Tissues for Transplantation (CIHDOTT).

Another factor influencing the increase in donations is the awareness campaigns about the importance and seriousness of the donation that involves all actions. "We showed that transplantation is a transparent process managed by the state agency, with technical criteria and reporting to the National Transplant System," explained the coordinator.

In transplants combined liver and kidney also increased. Over the past three years, no such procedure had been performed. Until June 30, 2012, three surgeries were done in Paraná. The number of liver also showed an increase from 30 to 43 (44%).
