Organ transplantation is a surgical procedure to replace a failing, diseased organ with a healthier donor organ, such as a heart, liver, kidney, or lung. Donor organs can come from deceased donors, which is always the case in heart transplants, or from living donors, which can happen in kidney, liver, and, rarely, lung transplants. Organ transplantation is the last resort for a person with a failing or diseased organ. Organ transplantation is considered on an individual basis. For some patients, it is a life-saving option, while other patients may be deemed poor candidates for a transplant.
Through Archive of Organ Transplantation, Peertechz provides transplant practitioners and researchers an opportunity to share valuable, experienced and recent views about organ transplantations with fellow medical practitioners, post graduate students, educational institutions, libraries and hospitals and provide experienced insights and reviews regarding liver, kidney, bone marrow, heart and lung transplantations to the readers.
Why Archive of Organ Transplantation?
Organ transplantation is a major surgery that carries potential risks and drawbacks, such as the chance of organ rejection. Over the course of the last century, organ transplantation has overcome major technical limitations to become the success it is today. The breakthroughs include developing techniques for vascular anastomoses, managing the immune response and devising preservation solutions that enable prolonged periods of ex vivo storage while preserving function. However, one challenge that has remained from the outset is to overcome the shortage of suitable donor organs.
Peertechz realize these facts that an individual and his/her loved ones needs to gather as much information as possible on organ transplants, prior to transplant. Peertechz's Archive of Organ Transplantation is a scholarly journal that addresses ground breaking original research and state of the art review articles related to all types of organ and tissue transplants.
