Do you have this kind of knowledge about organ transplantation?


An operation moving an organ from one organism (the donor) to another (the recipient) called as organ transplantation.

Types of organ transplantation
Autograft 
Allograft
Isograft 
Xenograft and Xenotransplantion 
Split transplants 

Autograft - A transplant of tissue from one to oneself.

Allograft - An allograft is a transplanted organ or tissue from a genetically non-identical member of the same species.

Isograft - A subset of allografts in which organs or tissues are transplanted from a donor to a genetically identical recipient (such as an identical twin).

Xenograft and Xenotransplantion - A transplant of organs or tissue from one species to another. Xenotransplantion is often an extremely dangerous type of transplant.

Split transplants - Sometimes, a deceased-donor organ (specifically the liver) may be divided between two recipients, especially an adult and a child.
