Tobacco Smoking and Solid Organ Transplantation : Transplantation | Organ Donation & Transplant Matters Resources | Scoop.it

This review of the impact of smoking, both by organ donors and by recipients on transplant outcomes is available free online via the journal Transplantation.

 

Smoking,whether it be in the donor population or in the recipient population impacts on outcomes after organ transplantation. Some of these outcomes are specific to the type of organ being transplanted. This is further explored in the article.

 

For eg. In the deceased donor population smoking becomes one of the risk factors that is taken into consideration when an assessment is made of the overall medical suitability for the organs to be used for transplantation.
