Why one needs liver transplantation?
Liver transplantation is required when the liver stops functioning properly. It is the only organ that can regenerates on its own therefore if there is a need of liver transplantation it means that the whole liver has gone for a six and one should be aware of the criticality. It can happen suddenly and the contributing factors for liver failure are chronic hepatitis with cirrhosis of liver, primary biliary cirrhosis, cholangitis, alcoholism, Wilson disease which is a hereditary disorder, alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency and liver cancer. There are other factors also contributing to liver transplantation.
Who can donate liver?
Liver donor is the person who is ready to donate whole of his liver to the patient in need. Donors are cadaver. But sometimes relatives also donate a part of their liver to the person on need for his survival. The donor can be living as well. A living donor is the one who is ready to give a part of his liver to the recipient while he is living. This is a common procedure in children as child sized liver are always in short supply.
The process involves pre investigation of the recipient and the donor. All the investigations including the blood profile, heart assessment are assessed. [Pre anesthetic check up is done to avoid any reaction during the surgical procedure. Both the parties are checked for status of disease, likelihood of survival, other disease conditions and any other mental disorder to avoid any mishap.
