Abstract

What we accomplish today as a matter of routine was only imagined by a few 4 decades ago. The journey from that first successful kidney transplant in the 1950s to the multidisciplinary, multiorgan transplant program of today has been a fascinating one. Although we attribute our current results to careful recipient selection and preparation, improvements in organ procurement and preservation, refinement of surgical techniques, improvement in histocompatibility techniques and organ sharing, improvements in immunosuppression and infection control, and careful monitoring of recipients, we and our patients have benefited from significant contributions from our colleagues in government and the law. The 4 that come to mind are the provision of near-universal insurance coverage for end stage renal disease patients in 1972 under the Medicare program, the passage of brain death laws in the mid 1970s, the passage of the National Transplant Act in 1984, and the passage of the Oregon required request law in 1985.
