The first organ to be transplanted was the kidney in 1905 and the organ was transplanted successfully (1). Most people who need organ transplants are close to death and therefore receiving an organ is incredible for the patient (2). Though the years, other organs have been transplanted, like the pancreas, lungs, liver and heart (2).  Organ transplant depends on the kind of organ to be transplanted hence some factors are more important than the others. Fortunately the medical technology has improved and has the generation continues the donors have become more available than the past (1) and less risky and therefore more prevalent (3). Some doctors discovered that some donors reject organs, which causes the procedure to fail and these makes some donations not safe some patients.
