This chapter discusses ethical and legal aspects of organ transplantation. After reviewing the technical criteria—or biological hurdles—associated with transplantation, and the two primary types of transplantation (i.e., homotransplantation and xenotransplantation), it explores the regulatory framework and types of donors in the living donor context, and the same for the cadaveric donor. It also looks briefly at neonates and foetal donors, donations for the aged, and reconstructive transplants.
