Nowadays there are a large number of terminal patients suffering from the malfunction of vital organs such as heart, liver, kidney, lung, etc. The best medical way-out for these patients is organ transplant, which is made possible with organs donated by the deceased themselves or by the relatives' decision to help others. This will extend the patients' life so that they can go on contributing to their family and society. New organs that can be transplanted are heart, liver, kidney, lung, pancreas, bone, etc.
