A patient suffering from liver cirrhosis and who is assessed to have a life expectancy of less than a year is generally considered for a Liver transplant surgery. Patients who are suffering from severe liver disease should consult a liver doctor at the earliest. The medical treatment or the liver transplant surgery (as per doctor’s recommendation) would be more effective the earlier the problem is diagnosed and treatment is started. Therefore, timely treatment is very important in getting good results. If a liver transplant surgery is done timely on a patient who is in a reasonable health condition, with a good donor liver then there are high chances of success. Some of the symptoms of liver failure due to cirrhosis are black stool, blood vomiting, water in the abdomen, drowsiness and mental confusion, excessive bleeding from minor wounds,Jaundice,Kidney dysfunction, Excessive tiredness, Low hemoglobin and other blood counts .
Live Donor As the name suggests, a live donor is a living person who is healthy. In India, the law says that the donor should be a close blood relative of the patient.
Cadeveric Donor A cadaver is a brain dead person. Donation of liver is possible if the family member of the person wishes to donate the liver before the life support is discontinues.
Such donation is possible from a brain dead person whose family wishes to donate the person's organs before discontinuing life support. This situation arises only in a hospital ICU in a person after brain injury in an accident or in someone who has suffered fatal brain hemorrhage etc. In these circumstances, the whole liver can be used for an adult, and a part of it for a child. After removal from the donor (a process called liver retrieval) the liver can safely be kept preserved outside the body in special preservation solutions for 12-15 hours. Allocation of such organs is strictly according to blood group which must match, time on waiting list and urgency of requirement.
A liver transplant surgery starts with a detailed evaluation and a battery of tests for both the recipient and the donor. The evaluation of the recipient is done in three phases to establish definite diagnosis, determine the severity of liver disease and the urgency of the transplant. The functioning of all the vital organs is properly checked.
Before the liver transplant procedure the patient, donor and other family members are counselled about the procedure, hospital stay, the likely course after surgery, follow up and aftercare in order to help them to make up their mind and understand the process thoroughly.
Note: Treatment Options/Results may vary from patient to patient depending on their medical condition.
