Expert: Criminal offenses are hard to commit in transplantology

Ukrainian transplant surgeons are now afraid to do organ transplants due to public pressure, director of the Shalimov National Institute of Surgery and Transplantology Yuri Polyachenko told a press conference "Law of organ donation: presumption of consent and other pitfalls", ForUm correspondent reports.

"I understand the concern of journalists, human rights activists and the public regarding the black transplantation. I would say that today there are very few professionals, who can carry out such operations," he said.

However, according to him, even Ukrainian transplant surgeons feel disbelief on the part of society. "There is another side of the problem, which is slurred over for some reason. Doctors are not morally ready to transplant - they do not want to take responsibility," the director of the Institute said.

Polyachenko recalled that the preparation and conduct of transplant operation involves an ethical committee, the relatives of potential donors, and a medical team, conducting the operation, consists of at least 15 people.

"So it is hard to say that criminal offenses will be made in this regard. Another thing is that some people can work in this direction, for example, to steal a database of donors," he said.
