Abstract

With advances in surgical techniques, organ transplantation has emerged as the established therapy for treating a variety of end stage organ failure conditions. Correspondingly there has been a rise in the demand for transplantation in the clinic, consequently creating a highly competitive environment for patients waiting to receive a transplant. An inevitable outcome of this is the implementation of restrictive criteria in order to prioritize the transplantation cases. Given the complexity of the decision making process in the case of pediatric patients, children often become the innocent targets of such restrictive criteria, especially in the presence of other health complications like mental and/ or physical disabilities. Our group proposes an approach that replaces the currently established restrictive criteria towards transplantation with a system based upon inclusivity. This approach suggests a revision of criteria that must be met in order to receive transplantation as opposed to rejecting cases based upon disability, thereby creating a system that allows all patients an equal opportunity for receiving transplantation.
