Rabin Medical Center set a record for organ transplants in Israel when in a recent 24-hour period, six transplants were performed, including one heart, two lungs, one liver and two kidneys, thus saving the lives of six patients. A 61-year-old man waited four years for the heart. The liver was transplanted into a 58-year-old man suffering from Hepatitis C who had been on the waiting list for 10 years. The kidney transplants were carried out in a sevenyear- old boy from Schneider Children's Medical Center and in a 48-year-old woman. Rabin Medical Center's Department of Organ Transplantation, under the direction of Prof. Eytan Mor, deserves its fine reputation because it allows Rabin Medical Center to carry out the majority of organ transplants in Israel.
