Donation of heart in cases of brain death has a low utilization in the country, according to the surgeon's National Heart Institute (INC), Andrey Monteiro. The average is 30% success rate.

Chief of the Transplantation of INC, Monteiro said that, at least in Rio de Janeiro, the tendency is to have a gradual improvement, but that, beyond the need for campaigns to increase the number of donors, a greater effort is required by the standard-setters organs and the transplant centers to establish political awareness among health staff.

Several times when we get these units [hospitals and emergency services], the donor is already showing signs of deterioration of heart condition and we are unable to take advantage of the body, even when the family agrees [with donations] and after the protocol brain death, the surgeon explains.

To Monteiro, teams choose, at times, to prioritize patients viable, not taking into account the importance of donor organs for other patients.

On Thursday (27), celebrates the National Day of Organ Donation. The INC is a national benchmark for heart transplants in adults and children. Today, in this country, there are about 300 people waiting for organ donations that.
