On behalf of the organizing committee, it gives us great pleasure to invite you to the 25th Malaysian Society of Transplantation which will be held on 27th to 29th May 2022 at The Marriot Putrajaya.

In 2020, we conducted The Annual Scientific Meeting physically despite the COVID-19 Pandemic. In 2021, The 24th Annual Scientific was conducted in collaboration with the 17th Congress of Asian Society of Transplantation and 36th Annual Congress of Malaysian Society of Nephrology which was a virtual meeting. Despite the challenges with continuous battle against the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope we will be able to have a hybrid meeting in 2022 to enable us to engage international colleagues.

We hope that this Annual Scientific Meeting will continue to be align with the objectives of The Malaysian Society of Transplantation which are

  1. Promote and assist in the development of organ and tissue transplantation in Malaysia
  2. Disseminate and exchange information relating to the field of organ transplantation at both local and international level
  3. Ensure and maintain ethical standards in the field on transplantation in Malaysia
  4. With the above objectives in mind, we are introducing a few new tracks

    Special session for dialysis paramedics
    Our paramedics plays an exceptional role in communicating with patients and family members and ensuring the well-being of our ESKD patients. This session is designed to:

    1. Enhance knowledge in kidney transplantation
    2. Empower the dialysis paramedics in identifying patients who are suitable for kidney transplantation and provide initial counselling of patients for kidney transplantation
    3. Assisting nephrologist in managing the deceased donor waiting list through hand-on training on the Malaysian Kidney Allocation System (MyKAS)

    Special session: Management of End Stage Organ Disease
    Solid organ transplantation saves lives in patients with end stage organ failures and improve quality of life. Access to organ transplantation requires identification of suitable recipients, evaluation for fitness to undergo the transplant surgery and equitable allocation process. However, referral for organ transplantation remains low. This session is designed to:

    1. Empower junior clinicians in identifying patients that should be considered for organ transplantation
    2. Enhance knowledge on indications, contraindications, and preparation for organ transplantation
    3. Exposure to MyNOW (Malaysian National Organ Waiting List) to improve referral pathway for patients with End Stage Organ Disease

    New session on bone transplantation
    In line with MST objectives, this year we will be introducing a new track on bone banking and bone transplantation

    In Malaysia, our organ transplantation rate remains the lowest in the world and it is our responsibility to promote the transplant agenda to the next level

    We sincerely look forward to having you participating in this meeting.
    In the meantime, stay safe...
