The OPTN Liver and Intestinal Organ Transplantation Committee seeks public comment beginning October 15, 2019, on a proposed change to a closed variance for allocation of the second segment of split livers. The proposed amendment would align the geographic distribution area within the variance to the geographic distribution units currently in use, as well as those to be used upon future implementation of the acuity circles distribution policy.
This proposal will be posted to the public comment section of the OPTN website for a special one-month comment period, closing November 14, 2019 at midnight Eastern time. The special public comment period will allow the OPTN Board of Directors to take action on the proposal at its December 2019 meeting.
