What’s to Blame for Sex Disparities in Allocating Livers?
« on: September 02, 2020, 11:53:45 am »
Addressing geographic disparities in the availability of transplantable livers from deceased donors alone may not mitigate sex-based disparities in the allocation of these organs.

That’s the main finding of a study published in JAMA Surgery in which a research team analyzed data on 81,357 adults on the liver transplant list who were waiting only for that particular organ.

It is widely recognized that women and men awaiting transplants are not equally likely to receive donor organs. The study authors sought to estimate the proportion of the disparity between men and women in wait list mortality and the receipt of a deceased donor liver transplant (DDLT) that was attributable to clinical and geographic characteristics.
