Transplants of all kinds increased in Spain, particularly lung replacements, up nearly 20 percent, and pancreas transplants, up more than 10 percent, the health ministry said.

A record total of 4,279 transplants were carried out in Spain in 2013, of which 2,552 were of kidneys, 1,093 of livers and 285 of lungs, it said.

“The Spanish transplant system, which has been the world leader for 22 years, has again demonstrated its vitality,” said the head of the state National Transplant Organisation, Rafael Matesanz.

“Its activity increased in 2013 in very difficult circumstances,” he told a news conference, presenting a transplants report.
