Living donor complications decreasing

  • 0

It appears a small concern is getting even smaller.

a new study finds there are very few complications that develop after someone donates an organ and the ones we’ve seen so far are declining.

A team of researchers looked at more than 69, 000 people.

the incidence of complications around surgery dropped from 10% in 1998 to 8% in 2010. Males and donors with high blood pressure were more likely to have complications around surgery and the median length of stay declined over time, from about 4 days to 3.

But the risk of complications for living organ donors who are obese, depressed, have high blood pressure, or breathing disorders have actually gone up.
