Potential conflicts of interest generated by the use of non-heart-beating cadavers.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The non-heart-beating cadaver donor procurement process might come in conflict with the organ sharing system by diverting organs from potential recipients. It might also have a negative effect on public attitudes about transplantation. The process could start society down a slippery slope leading to extending donor criteria. Some of these scenarios are merely theoretical, but the procedure should be monitored to avoid such problems.
