The nephrology department of Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences conducted an internal study, showing that more men undergo transplant than women and also that women to men live transplant is very high. Women are more sacrificial than men when it comes to organ transplant. "When it comes to recipients both cadaveric and live majority are men. The ratio of 70:30 is not really balanced. Also, we found that husband to wife transplant was less than 10%," said Dr George Kurian, nephrologist, Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, Kochi.
