First successful post-cardiac death kidney transplant performed in Israel
For the first time in Israel, doctors successfully transplanted the kidneys of a donor after cardiac death, Israel's National Transplant Center announced. Health officials hope that the methodology used for the transplant will substantially increase the number of kidneys available for transplant in the country. Most organs for transplant are currently retrieved after the donor has been certified as brain dead but before the heart stops beating — the state known as cardiac death.
