Transplantation means to receive an organ. We say that an organ is ‘transplanted’ when it is operated in a patient. We could also say that the patient ‘is transplanted’ as they have ‘received an organ’.


Transplantasjon betyr å motta et organ. Man sier at et organ «transplanteres», når det opereres inn i en pasient. Man kan også si at pasienten «er transplantert», som i «har mottatt et organ».
