Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Cadaveric organ donation is not at desired levels in our country. However, the number of patients on cadaveric kidney waiting lists is increasing. This situation also makes it difficult to follow cadaveric kidney recipient candidates at transplantation centers. It is very important for the medical status and information of the waitlisted candidates to be current at the time of the cadaveric kidney transplant call. In this study, we investigated the exclusion reasons of cadaveric transplantation candidates at our center.
