Abstract:
Before launching live donor liver transplantation in Chicago, the preparations included thorough ethical discussion, which was subsequently published in The New England Journal of Medicine. Despite not being the first team with a successful case, the Chicago group earned credit for introducing the procedure in a careful and sensitive manner. Many transplant centers around the world built on this experience and ethical analysis to initiate live donor liver transplantation at regional programs.
