Liver Transplantation  

A Liver Transplantation is a surgery to replace a failing or damaged Liver with a healthy well-functioning Liver.  

Liver transplant is usually reserved as a treatment option for people who have significant complications due to End-stage Chronic Liver Disease. Liver Transplant may also be a treatment option in rare cases of sudden failure of a previously healthy Liver. 

Liver transplant is a treatment option for some people with Liver cancer and for people with Liver failure whose condition can't be controlled with other treatments. 

Liver Failure may happen quickly or over a long period of time. Liver failure that occurs quickly, in a matter of weeks, is called acute Liver Failure. Acute Liver Failure is an uncommon condition that is usually the result of complications from certain medications. 

  • The donated Liver can be a Living Donor or a Deceased (Braindead) Donor.  
Types of Liver Transplant   

There are two types of Liver Transplants:  

Deceased Donor (Braindead, Cadaveric) Transplant

  • Brain-dead patients on ventilators may donate Organs if their family consents. 
  • Patients must enrol through the hospital to be listed for a Transplant and are alerted when a potential Donor becomes available.  

Living Donor Liver Transplant

  • Living Donors can donate part of their Liver. 

Receiving a portion of a Liver from a living donor is an alternative to waiting for a deceased donor's Liver to become available. Living-donor Liver Transplant is possible because the human Liver regenerates and returns to its normal size shortly after surgical removal of part of the organ 

In general, about 75% of people who undergo Liver Transplants live for at least five years. 

The Liver is one of the most adaptable Organs in our body and any malfunction or disorder can result in various processes being affected. Also a very tough Organ, the Liver can continue to function despite certain ailments. However, at a stage when medical intervention is no longer helpful and the Liver can no longer continue to support the normal functioning of the body, a Liver Transplant is the only option.
