DCD in Pediatrics: Expanding the Donor Pool Through Kidney & Liver Utilization

Tuesday, March 09, 2021, at 2:00pm

With the number of pediatric patients on the transplant waitlist rising, there is a critical need to expand the donor pool. As a result, Donation after Circulatory Determination of Death (DCDD) has become a focus within the donation-transplantation community as a means of accomplishing just that. In this webinar, we will highlight effective practices for facilitating DCDD cases with potential pediatric donors. Additionally, we will hear from two transplant centers as they share their experiences with kidney utilization, liver transplantation, and waitlist mortality in pediatrics.
