The availability of a regional team may facilitate the organization and coordination of organ procurement. As a result, regional organ procurement has been reported to reduce costs, streamline logistics, and increase safety for the teams. We herein report a case of brain-dead donor liver transplantation with regional organ procurement. Because of the collaboration between the transplant team and the donor surgery team, the latter being was comprised of a liver transplant team in the local area of the donor hospital, a smooth brain-dead donor liver transplantation was successfully performed. Regional organ procurement is considered achievable in the future with the standardization of organ procurement by the establishment of an educational system for donor surgery.
