Steve Jobs' Liver — And the Quest for a Better Organ Algorithm
from Ars Technica
In 2009, Steve Jobs received a liver transplant — not in northern California where he lived, but across the country in Memphis, Tennessee. Given the general complications of both travel and a transplant, Jobs' decision may seem like an odd choice. But it was a strategic move that almost certainly got him a liver much more quickly than if Jobs had just waited for a liver to become available in California. Eight years later, the Apple founder's procedure continues to highlight the state of transplants in the U.S.: when it comes to organs, we have a big math problem.
