Be partial in life. Donate just a part of your liver to your relative.

LIVER TRANSPLANT- WHAT TO EXPECT? A liver transplant is considered in case of liver failure. Liver failure can happen as a result of viral hepatitis, drug-induced injury or infection. Liver failure can also be the end result of a long-term liver disease. There can be many ways a liver transplant can be done. They are as follows: Cadaveric Transplant  Cadaveric organ transplant includes a transplant from a deceased and usually unrelated donor. Most hospitals have quite a long waiting list since cadaveric organs are not available very frequently. Priority on the list is decided on the basis of disease severity and on a first come first served basis. This score is known as MELD (Model of End Stage Liver Disease) in adults and PELD (Pediatric End Stage Liver Disease) in children. It is very difficult to predict when a liver will become available but the liver coordinator at the hospital will keep you apprised of the situation. Live Donor Transplant In a Live Donor Transplant, a part of the liver of a healthy person is removed by surgery and used for transplant. The liver regenerates (grows back to its normal size and function) within just 2 to 3 weeks. Specialists from a variety of fields are needed to determine if the liver donor is appropriate. Many health care facilities assemble a team of such specialists to evaluate and choose the right candidates for a liver transplant. A living donor should be a close family member called as a ‘near relative’. He/she can be a spouse, parent, sibling, grandparent, or child of the recipient. Any of these can be a donor but they should be healthy and pass all their tests and fulfill the requirements of the law. The donor should be between 18 to 55 years old, willing and healthy family person between the weight of 50 to 85 kg. Overweight or obese people tend to have fatty livers which have chances of not working well in the recipient’s body. He/she should have either the same blood group as the recipient’s or blood group “O”. Some screening tests for donors are CBC, PT, LFTs, Serum creatinine, HBsAg, HCV antibody and Ultrasound of the abdomen. These tests may result in rejection of a potential donor. This can be stressful for the family but prevents an unsafe and unsuccessful transplantation. A new donor should then be identified. Both the patient’s and donor’s emotional willingness for transplant are important for a successful transplant to occur. If any problems in these aspects are noted, they should be counseled during evaluation. Swap transplant If one of patient’s family members is suitable and willing for donation, but is not a good match for the patient, a paired donation or swap transplant can be done. In this technique of transplant, two families with suitable living donors exchange their donors as they are not a good match for their own patient, but are appropriate for each other’s recipient’s. Both transplants are performed simultaneously. Hence, they can only be done by a large experienced medical transplant team.  Dual lobe liver transplant It is common that in one family two or more people might have been rejected for donation because of low liver volumes but were otherwise suitable donors. In such a case, partial livers from both are combined which then becomes adequate for the patient. Three operations are performed simultaneously – one recipient and two donors. Dual Lobe transplants are complicated and offered only by a few centres. Pre and Post Liver Transplant Post the transplantation, the patient will have to remain in the hospital for around 2 to 3 weeks which may vary in some cases. The hepatologist will guide the patient on signs and symptoms to watch out for in case of a liver rejection. The care at hospital and later home involves following the medication plan to enable the liver to resume its normal functioning and prevent rejection. The patient will also have to come for your scheduled health check-ups at the hospital for certain blood tests. Depending on the patients medical condition prior to the surgery, it takes a few months for patients to resume their routine activities and on an average around six months for patient to be fully healed.
