Natura e caratteristiche del consenso al prelievo di organi e tessuti da cadavere. Un raffronto tra Italia ed Inghilterra

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The essay deals with the deceased donor organ donations and, in particular, with the nature and the features of the consent which authorizes the removal from the body of a deceased person of any relevant material. The analysis is conducted through the scrutiny of the relationship that exists between the choice about to be or not an organ donor and the social interest to obtain a rapid increase of organ donation. The essay makes a comparison between the Italian and the English legal approaches to the freedom of deciding the allocations of removed organs, with a special regard to directed donations.
