Main Causes of Nonfulfillment of Corneal Donation in Five Hospitals of a Brazilian State

The waiting list for corneal transplantation in Brazil had 6684 patients in June 2012, with great variations in the number of patients among different states. The mean waiting time for a corneal transplant also differs substantially across the states: it is 2 years in State of Espirito Santo (ES) at... Full description

description: The waiting list for corneal transplantation in Brazil had 6684 patients in June 2012, with great variations in the number of patients among different states. The mean waiting time for a corneal transplant also differs substantially across the states: it is 2 years in State of Espirito Santo (ES) at the time of this study. The aim of the study was to determine the main reasons for nonfulfillment of corneal donation in five ES hospitals. The data collection was performed from March to August 2010. The data were collected using forms completed daily by the Intrahospital Commissions of Organ and Tissues Donation for Transplantation. The total number of deaths was 1347. The main causes of nonfulfillment of donations were medical contraindications (67.86%), logistical/structural problems (27.84%), and family refusal (2.15%). The main medical contraindications were age outside the required range (24.49%), the presence of infectious disease (11.36%), or age outside the range plus infection (15.66%). In 2010, there were 459 people on the waiting list for corneas in ES. Considering the average of failures in these five hospitals multiplied by the number of hospitals in the ES, it seems clear that the solutions to these problems might eliminate the waiting list of the State. In fact, the number of individuals on the waiting list in ES did reach zero in August 2011, after the inauguration of a new Eye Bank that trains employees to interview and perform procurements, in addition to keeping them available in the most important hospitals. Additionally, the maximal age for donation in ES was increased.

The waiting list for corneal transplantation in Brazil had 6684 patients in June 2012, with great variations in the number of patients among different states. The mean waiting time for a corneal transplant also differs substantially across the states: it is 2 years in State of Espirito Santo (ES) at the time of this study.

The data were collected using forms completed daily by the Intrahospital Commissions of Organ and Tissues Donation for Transplantation. The total number of deaths was 1347.
