CLINICAL AND ETHICAL ASPECTS OF TRANSPLANT MEDICINE
Languages of publication
Today, the field of transplantation has enormous achievements, especially with reference to the renal, heart and liver transplantation. It is particularly visible when you trace the history of the transplant medicine and its rapid growth in the second part of the 20th century. However, in spite of the development of surgical techniques and elaboration of a number of rules that qualify organs for transplantation, the number of problems connected with taking organs does not decrease. Along with the development of transplantation many moral questions appeared, such as verifying the actual death of the organ donor and connected with setting clear criteria for choosing the organ donor for transplantation. These aspects of the transplant medicine that raise doubts and even controversy have become the subject of ethical exploration.
