Many of us in the tissue banking side of the transplant community share cases with our counterparts on the organ donation side of the transplant world. Medical records, assessments and even NAT testing samples are shared. However, many things are different when determining donation eligibility. Through this presentation, we will highlight various tissue deferrals which are acceptable for organ donation and some scenarios which tissue may be acceptable but organs are not.
