Description

An investigation of one of the top transplant centers in the world; The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center(UPMC), found that the center was frequently using 'marginal livers' due to shortage of organs across the nation. By accepting rejected liver from other centers, UPMC shows high number of patients needing second transplants. Many transplant surgeons UPMC surgeons knowingly use unsuitable organs because those patients would go to the top of the wait list.
