In February 2000, a sentence of the Supreme Court of Justice ratified that being the transplantation surgery procedures close dependent, they have to be co-ordinate. Therefore, this kind of surgery presupposes a "multidisciplinary co-operation", where different specialists work at the same time or one after another. For this reason, in the sentence not only the doctor who committed the mistake was held responsible, but also other colleagues that have undervalued his action. Strarting from this sentence, Authors describe the procedure of transplantation in all phases (donor's and receiver's clinical condition, donor-receiver compatibility, surgical treatment, receiver short or long time post- surgical assistance) isolating the cases of receiver damage and analysing in which of these hypothesis of professional liability can be recognised.
