Study: Bigger transplant centers have better outcomes
from By Chelsea Adams
How a patient will fare after an organ transplant can be difficult to predict. However, researchers using a computerized algorithm found that larger transplant centers have better patient outcomes than smaller centers. The results of their study were published recently in The American Journal of Transplantation. Prior research studies have found an increased mortality rate among centers that perform fewer than 14 heart transplants or 20 lung transplants per year.
