Donor evaluation for vascularized composite allotransplantation (VCA) is exceptionally complex. In addition to serologic considerations, rigorous donor–recipient matching criteria must be met, including anatomic and demographic factors. Devastating injuries that ultimately dictate candidacy for VCA typically require extensive resuscitation and exposure to antigenic products. Even upon identification of an optimal donor, the authorization process poses unique challenges. Timing of donor identification, organ and tissue procurement, and eventual transplantation are more limiting as compared to solid...
