What is a Liver Transplant?

A liver transplant is a surgical procedure performed to replace a diseased liver with a healthy liver. The liver may come from a cadaveric donor (brain dead person) or from a living donor. Family members or individuals who are unrelated but make a good match may be able to donate a portion of their liver. This type of transplant is called a living transplant.

An entire liver may be transplanted, or just a section. Liver is the only organ in the body able to regenerate, a transplanted portion of a liver can rebuild to normal capacity within weeks.

Reasons for the Procedure

A liver transplant may be recommended for people who are suffering from end-stage liver disease (ESLD), a serious, life-threatening liver dysfunction. ESLD may result from various conditions of the liver.

The most common liver disease is liver cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is a slowly progressing disease in which healthy liver tissue is replaced with scar tissue, eventually preventing the liver from functioning properly.

Other diseases that may progress to ESLD are:

  • Biliary atresia. A condition in which the bile ducts are absent.
  • Metabolic disease. Conditions that affect the chemical activity in cells that are affected by the liver.
  • Liver cancers. These are primary tumors that have not spread outside the liver.
  • Autoimmune hepatitis. A chronic inflammation of the liver, resulting in liver cell damage and destruction.

Types of Donor?

For Liver Transplant Surgery there are two types of donors:

happy-patientsLiving Donor – A living donor is a living and active person. In living donor liver transplantation, a piece of liver is removed from a living donor and transplanted into a recipient.

Cadaveric Donor – A Cadaveric Donor is a brain dead person. A donor who has recently died and has not had liver injury. This type of donor is called a cadaver donor.

Important Note: In India there is long waiting list for Cadaveric Donors since cadaveric organs are not frequently available and the wait for such donors may extend to several months. For Overseas patients, only living donor liver transplants are recommended, which requires them to bring a healthy, willing donor (a close relative or family member only) with them when they come for a transplant. Cadaveric transplants are not practical for overseas patients. Moreover the success rate for Living Donor Liver Transplantation is more than the Cadaveric Donor Liver Transplantation.

What People say?“My brother was suffering severe hepatititis. I showed it to local doctors in my home country and they were of the opinion that my brother might need a liver transplant surgery. But there are no good hospital or facility for liver transplant surgery in my home country. Then I started to search for hospital outside my country for the treatment.

I searched on the internet and I found IndiaCarez website. I filled up the form on the website. I got a call from the case manager and she told me to send the medical reports of my brother. I sent the reports by mail and the case manager got back to me with the opinion doctor and the treatment package. She was very kind and explained me in detail about the package and traveling to India for liver transplant.The quote was afffordable to me and I was staisfied with the profile of the treating doctor. The case manageer helped me with the passport, visa and the air tickets which saved a lot of my time.

I and my brother were seen by a team of doctors the next day and a series of tests were carried out.The surgery was planned and it went on sucessfully. We stayed in India for few more days for follow up.Overall it was a great experience. My brother is doing well and I am extremely grateful to the doctors.
