Abstract

Transplantation benefits from appropriate regulation by ensuring adherence to quality and safety standards. However, Dr. Andreoni highlights in his Personal Viewpoint the unintended consequences of heightened regulatory control . While the article has a US perspective, its message is global. For example, in the UK any center with statistical deviation in actual-versus-expected 30-day survival outcomes can be investigated. US data show that discard rates have risen and the number of patients waiting for transplants has flattened in the era of enhanced regulation; suggesting we are providing fewer transplant opportunities for patients who could potentially benefit.
