The significant improvements in the management of immunosuppression over the last decades have been a major impetus for the expansion of organ transplantation. This success has led to a proliferation in the number of transplant programs throughout the world. However, at the present time, the number of transplantation procedures tends to reach a plateau in most countries, with increasing delay for transplantation for patients on the waiting list. Donor organ availability appears to be the single most important factor responsible for this phenomenon.
