Transplantation is the only medical treatment that needs the solidarity of other people to be carried out.
Transplantation consists in replacing a damaged organ or tissue with one that is working properly and that comes from a donor. Without donor solidarity there would be no transplants. Currently this area is perfectly consolidated and regulated, making our country a world leader both in the number of transplants and in the donation rate .
This simple explanation and these successful data contrast with the complexity of the treatment. Although patients improve quality of life after the transplant, there are still risks because exists the probability that they can end up suffering infection or rejection. Hence the importance of maintaining an immunosuppressive balance. It is here that the tireless and excellent work of the healthcare professionals dedicated to the transplant area shines again.
