China tests new procedure for organ transplant

LOCAL hospitals said a pilot program that encourages organ donation after cardiac death should greatly benefit patients with organ failure. However health authorities should work out a practical system to carry out the program which began this month.
According to the Ministry of Health, all big hospitals qualified to do organ transplant can apply to provincial health bureau for a one-year license to perform organ transplant after a donor's cardiac death.
Hospitals that performed more than ten transplants within one year can apply for a long-term license from the Organ Transplant Committee.
Doctors said the practice can increase the number of organ transplants by seven times in China.
