Liver Transplant

A liver transplant is a life-preserving operation that replaces a diseased and poorly functioning liver with either a whole or portion of a healthy donated liver. Liver transplantation has become a well-recognized treatment option for people with organ failure.

Livers are donated either from individuals who have been declared brain dead and with the consent of their next of kin, or from a living donor such as a relative or friend. Liver transplant centres match donors with recipients based on compatible liver size and blood type.

When medical therapy is effective in stopping the progression of liver disease, transplantation may be avoided or delayed. If a patient develops advanced disease, with impaired liver function, which is non-reversible, liver transplantation should be considered. Liver Transplantation is not suitable for everyone, so all potential transplant patients must be carefully assessed.

A liver transplant is major surgery with an operation lasting more than eight hours. As with any major medical procedure, liver transplantation has risks. These risks along with the benefits must be carefully considered before this major surgery.
