Romania joined the list of countries with the highest number of organ transplants
Romania is the top leader with the highest number of transplants achieved at European level, with a record of 60 donors in the first four months of 2013, when 120 kidney transplants and 53 liver transplants have been performed.
The first transplant in Romanian was done in 1958. Doctor Agripa Ionescu performed a skin transplantation. The first experimental liver transplant was performed in the Floreasca Hospital in Bucharest . But it was only an attempt.
Only in the 1980, at the Fundeni Clinic Institute in Bucharest, prof, Eugeniu Proca succeeded in transplanting a kidney from mother to son. Every year, Romania has made progress both from a technical perspective but also by increasing the donors number.
‘The year 2013 is, as we know, the best year in the Romanian transplants history, and that due to the big number of donors since the beginning of the year’, prof. dr. Irinel Popescu said.
Irinel Popescu placed Romania among the countries with the highest number of liver transplants performed in a year.
