Organ transplants in Italy 2000-2019

The number of organ transplants grew remarkably over time in Italy. As a matter of fact, in 2000 2,386 transplants took place, whereas 3,813 procedures were carried out as of 2019. The number of transplants peaked in 2017, when 3,950 organ transplants were accomplished. A kidney transplant was the most common procedure carried out, followed at a considerable distance by liver and heart transplant.  

Kidney donation waiting list

However, the kidney was the organ most often required . As a matter of fact, 6,460 patients were on the kidney transplantation waiting list in 2019. Also, the number of deaths among patients waiting for a kidney was the highest of all organs.    

Organ donors

In recent years, the number of organ donors considerably increased , from 1,105 to 1,743 donors between 2002 and 2019. The growth was especially remarkable from 2013 onwards. It may be assumed that the possibility to make a declaration of intent about organ donation concurrently with the renewal of the Identity Document – recently introduced in many Italian cities – had an impact on the increase of organ donors.
