Hungarian organ transplantation reached a new milestone after half-a-century history, when becoming a full member of the 135-million Eurotransplant community this year. The transplantation of the five organs: kidney, liver, pancreas, heart and lung became a routine procedure. A handful of specialists performed nearly 7000 transplantations and doing so supported the evolution of a special branch of the Hungarian health care system. The author reports the latest results of the preliminary membership year, looking forward with great optimism by seeing new horizons with the advantages of the full membership.
