The disparity between organ demand and available grafts has increased over the past years. On the one hand, transplant centres face the problem of significantly rising numbers of patients listed for transplantation due to improved outcome. On the other hand, the number of available deceased donors remains quite stable. As a consequence, several strategies for expanding the donor pool have been developed in order to overcome this gap. This chapter reviews several of these programmes.
