What is organ transplantation?

A recipient's body will receive an organ from the donor body during an organ transplantation procedure to replace a damaged or missing organ. Both the donor and the receiver could be present at the same spot, or the organs might be moved from the donor site to the recipient site. Autografts are defined as organ and/or tissue transplantations made within the body of the same individual. Allografts are recent transplant procedures that involve two recipients from the same species. Both cadaveric and live sources are acceptable for allografts.

Types of transplant 

  • Autograft- from and to the same person.
  • Allograft- from genetically similar, non identical members of same species.
  • Xenograft-from another species.

Types of donor :

  • Living
  • Deceased

 

Transplantable organs and tissues include:

  • Liver.
  • Kidney.
  • Pancreas.
  • Heart.
  • Lung.
  • Intestine.
  • Corneas.
  • Central ear.
  • Skin.
    Bone.
  • The bone marrow.
  • The heart valves.
  • Affixable tissue.
  • Vascularized composite allografts are transplants of a variety of structures, including connective tissue, blood vessels, muscles, bone, the uterus, and the skin.

How to prepare?

  • Keep moving. Prior to your transplant, it's critical to be in the best possible shape.
  • Maintain your optimism.
  • Be sure to eat and drink healthy things.
  • Aim to maintain a healthy weight.
  • Stop using tobacco.
  • Consume alcohol sparingly.
  • Take your medications.

What to expect?

One of the hospital's primary operating rooms is used for the actual transplant surgery. The time required for each treatment varies depending on the patient's health and the organ being transplanted, among other things.Patients are transported to the surgical intensive care unit or the transplant unit after surgery. They are continuously watched to make that their bodies are integrating the new organ and that the immunosuppressive drugs are not having any negative side effects.Depending on the patient's overall health prior to surgery, the type of transplant, and other considerations, the length of the patient's hospital stay can range from three to fourteen days.

Why should you be an organ transplant donor?

By giving your organs and tissue after passing away, you can prolong 75 more lives and save up to eight. Many families claim that having knowledge of their loved one helped other people deal with their loss. There are several blood types that are more common in minority cultures.

Conclusion:

For many organ-specific end-stage disorders, organ transplantation has emerged as the best option. But there are not enough donated organs to match the demand. Some donated organs might not be retrieved, some recovered organs might not be transplanted, and some transplanted organs might not work well. Therefore, in order to benefit many others, everyone should donate their organs.
