A liver transplant is a procedure conducted to remove a diseased liver that no longer functions properly and replacing it with a healthy liver from a living or deceased donor. Liver is often the most important organ of the body and helps in performing several critical functions such as removing toxins from the blood, regulating immune responses, processing hormones and medications, secreting bile juice, etc. Liver transplant is generally considered an option for those who have significant complications or are having chances of chronic liver disorder.
Causes of Liver Failure:
Who Can Be Your Donor?
LIVING DONOR: In this surgical procedure, a portion of the liver from a healthy living person is removed and replaced in the donor patient with a liver which is no longer working properly. Liver is capable of re-growth to its normal size & capacity within few months time in both donor and recipient and so a portion of the liver works good enough to restore the normal liver function. A family member is a preferred donor provided positive test results.
DECEASED DONOR: In this surgical procedure, a transplant happens by taking the healthy liver from a deceased donor. It happens, when a patient does not have a family member to donate a liver. Liver of person who died due to accident or from brain dead patients are usually preferred.
