Will new U.S. policy make it too hard for Kentuckians to get liver transplants?

Some Kentucky surgeons worry that a new way of allocating livers to U.S transplant patients could be detrimental, or even deadly, to people in the bluegrass state.

“The fear in Kentucky and many southern states, and many states that have transplant centers that represent rural patients, is … we’re going to become organ farms for large cities,” said Dr. Malay Shah, surgical director of liver transplant for UK HealthCare in Lexington.

The board that handles the issue on a national level passed a new policy earlier this month that will give patients who live in distant locales, such as Chicago, access to livers donated in Kentucky. The policy affects the handling of livers from most deceased adult donors across the country.

Organ donation bill passes in Frankfort, heads to governor’s desk

A bill to expand organ donor registration in Kentucky has successfully made it through the state House of Representatives and now awaits Gov. Matt Bevin’s signature. It is expected to take effect next year.

The legislation, backed by Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates and Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks’ Trust for Life, was approved by the House on Tuesday after being passed by the Senate earlier this month.

Senate Bill 77 will make it possible to register for organ donation through the Kentucky Online Gateway, a single sign-on system for accessing various government programs. The public also can continue to use old methods, such as signing up when getting a driver’s license or by going online to donatelifeky.org.
