Abdominal Multiorgan Retrieval
Organ transplantation has evolved from an experimental procedure to a well-established specialty, embracing advanced surgical techniques and cutting-edge technology. The transplantation pathway is now clearly established, starting with the identification of potential donors and the organ retrieval procedure through to transplantation and long-term follow-up of the patients who have undergone transplant procedures. This chapter focuses on the preoperative preparation and abdominal retrieval techniques in DBD and DCD donation and introduces some technical advances for DCD organ recovery.
