Abstract

With the increasing demand for organ transplantation, organ procurement from a deceased donor is an essential step for deceased donor organ transplantation. A proper surgical technique for the procurement of an organ graft from a deceased donor must be carried out to avoid any damage to it. Moreover, how to manage deceased donors until they enter the operating room in a stable condition is a critical point to be considered. The establishment of a surgical technique and preoperative management for organ procurement is encouraged to achieve a nationwide standard and consistency for organ graft sharing among the transplant units.
