Liver Transplantation

Liver performs a range of functions in the body and is a vital organ. A transplant of the liver becomes essential when it fails due to various reasons.

Causes of liver failure:

  • Chronic hepatitis with cirrhosis.
  • Primary biliary cirrhosis (destruction of bile ducts due to malfunctioning immune system).
  • Sclerosing cholangitis (damaged bile ducts).
  • Biliary atresia (biliary duct malformation).
  • Alcoholism.
  • Wilson's disease (an inherited disease that damages liver).
  • Hemochromatosis (liver damage due to excess iron).
  • Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency.
  • Liver cancer.

    This transplant can be done through a living or a deceased donor but the body size and blood type of the donor and the recipient have to match.

    Organ rejection and infection are the two potential complications and are treated with life-long drugs.
