What does it mean to be on ‘the list’ for a liver transplantation?

After being approved for a liver transplant, you will be registered with the United Network for Organ Sharing, more commonly called UNOS. That is the national waiting list that all patients are placed on. The list is the place where donor organs are matched with recipients who are on the wait list. You can visit their Web site for research and educational articles on transplantation.
