I have been added to the transplant list for a liver at Yale new haven. I understand I can get on other list in other parts of the country. How do I go about this?
Hey Bob, here are a couple links that explain organ allocation and multiple listing really well: https://www.unos.org/wp-content/uploads/unos/Multiple_Listing.pdf and https://optn.transplant.hrsa.gov/learn/about-transplantation/how-organ-allocation-works/.
You can view the average waiting times for different regions here: https://optn.transplant.hrsa.gov/converge/latestData/stateData.asp?type=region. The average preservation time for a liver is 8-12 hours, so that could make it difficult to receive a liver from a transplant center that is a great distance from your home.
To be added to the list at another transplant center, you have to be evaluated there just like you were at Yale. If you’re interested in being evaluated for transplant at any of our Mayo Clinic campuses (in Minnesota, Florida or Arizona), please contact us: http://www.mayoclinic.org/departments-centers/transplant-center/appointments-referrals.
Best of luck and please let us know if we can be of any help to you!
