Résumé
Background: Transplantation improves quality of life (kidney transplantation), and saves lives
(heart, lung or liver transplantation), but few qualitative studies have explored existential
questionings before transplantation.
Methods: In this phenomenological qualitative study, patients registered for kidney (n¼30), liver
(n¼11), lung (n¼15), or heart (n¼15) transplantation participated in a semi-structured interview.
Findings: The following aspects were discussed: The dilemma of choice, the evaluation process, the endorsement of the ''good candidate's role'', the modification of objects, time and space perception, the co-existence of life and death, and the challenge of the body integrity and of the person's identity. Transplantation generates paradoxical situations, and challenges the person's life values.
Discussion: Anxiety and distress may arise with awareness of existential questionings and the
co-existence different worlds' life values. Transplantation further generates a broader societal and ethical debate as how to accompany existential questionings in a pragmatic medical environment.
