Psychological Factors Influencing Donors' Decision-Making Pattern in Living-Donor Liver Transplantation
Transplantation 2011 Oct 27; 92(8): 936-42
It has been reported that living liver donors may develop psychological or psychosocial impairments after transplantation, although the majority of them do not develop much difficulties. Their postoperative psychological prognosis may be affected by the way they made their decision to donate. The purpose of this study was to investigate the association of donors' preoperative psychological factors with the processes of their individual decision-making to donate and their family-level decision-making to select one donor among themselves.
