Qatar considering living liver donor programme

Qatar's Hamad Medical Corp (HMC) is considering the possibility of introducing a 'living related programme' for liver donations and transplants, as 14 patients in need of transplants are waiting to receive livers from cadaveric donors, the Peninsula has reported. "Because of a small number of transplants, we are thinking of introducing living related programme. We have already started steps to see its effectiveness," said Dr Yousuf Al Maslamani, chief of medical staff at the Hamad General Hospital.
