Organdonasjon

Which organs can be donated?

These organs may be transplanted from a deceased person: Heart, both lungs, liver, both kidneys and pancreas, in total 7 organs. It is possible to extract cluster cells called islets of Lagerhans from the pancreas that can be used as a form of treatment for diabetes patients. A liver can be divided into two parts. As a living donor you can give one of your two kidneys to a family member, relative or close friend.
