Allocation of cadaver organs to transplant recipients in Eurotransplant: principles and policies, Anno 1998
Currently, organ allocation systems are a mosaic of the principles of justice and medical utility, in their achievement of the optimal usage of all available donor organs ; the allocation procedure itself should be transparent to all transplant programs (and to the transplant candidates they care for). In the view of the above-mentioned statements, it is clear that the design of an allocation system, i.e. selection of allocation factors and mode of allocation, is often based upon compromise solutions, ultimately satisfying the vast majority of the transplant programs. Sometimes minor as well as major changes are necessary in order to adhere to the basic principles of allocation.
