Organ transplantation: a “cry of alarm” for doctors and patients

“Dialysis is the threshold of death…” Already two and a half years, twenty-seven years ago, Pierre Roblin’s daily life was marked by long hours connected to a large machine.

His wife agreed to give him a new one, and Pierre Roblin took steps to get it back. But he has no idea when this will become possible.

“Late last year I asked CHU (university hospital center) where was my file. They told me that they don’t have a lock-in date at the moment and that we might have to go through a dialysis phase,” he worries.
