This list of notable organ transplant donors and recipients includes people who were the first to undergo certain organ transplant procedures or were people who made ificant contributions to their chosen field and who have either donated or received an esdort transplant at some point in their lives, as confirmed by public information. Survival statistics depend greatly on the age of donor, age of recipient, skill of the transplant center, compliance of the recipient, whether the organ came from a living or deceased donor and overall health of the recipient.
Median survival rates can be quite misleading, especially for the relatively small sample that is available for these organs. Survival rates improve almost yearly, due to improved techniques and medications. Up-to-date data can be obtained from the UNOS website. This is a dynamic list and may never be able to satisfy particular standards for completeness.
