First NY–to–LA Living-donor Transplant Chain Results in Triple Kidney Transplant
Innovative donor chain performed at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. The "donor chain" is an innovative twist on efforts aimed at increasing the donor pool by giving people who are unable to donate to a loved one or friend the opportunity to still give a kidney through an exchange between incompatible donor-recipient pairs. The domino effect of "chains" creates recipient-donor "clusters," with each subsequent cluster beginning with a "leftover" donor who starts the new cluster.
