Number of patients active on organ transplant waiting list in Sweden 2015-2018 The most common need of organ to be transplanted in 2018 was the kidney, with 1,173 patients on the transplant waiting list during that year (counted as the total number of patients ever active on the waiting list during the year). The number for 2018 was slightly lower than the previous years, but for all four years, a new kidney was the most demanded organ to be transplanted.
Highest activity rate for kidney transplants

   The rate of organ transplantation activity for kidneys in Sweden was slightly lower in 2018 than the previous year. In 2018, the rate was 44.8 per million population for kidney transplant activity. The corresponding figure for liver transplantation, the second most needed organ, was 16.3 per million population.  

Highest death number on the waiting list for kidney patients

   Despite the high activity rate for kidney transplants, the number of patients in need is too high for the supply, and the highest number of deaths among patients on the organ transplant waiting list was for kidney patients. In 2018, 31 patients died that were on the organ transplant waiting list for a new kidney.
