About Liver and Liver Transplant

  • The human body is very fragile.
  • Most of the organs in our body are not able to repair themselves.
  • Liver is an exception in this case. Liver has the capability to regenerate even if only one fourth of the liver is left.
  • This is important because the liver is one of the most important parts of the metabolism process.
  • It is responsible for detoxification of drugs in our body, of protein biochemicals that are necessary for digestion and growth. It is responsible for metabolizing drugs and food.
  • It is also responsible for the long term storage of carbohydrates and fat in the body.

What is liver transplant? 

  • A liver transplant is a surgical procedure to remove a diseased liver and replace it with a healthy liver from another person.
  • The most common reason for a liver transplant is end-stage liver disease caused by hepatitis C. 
  • Other reasons for a liver transplant can include end-stage liver disease caused by alcoholic cirrhosis, hepatitis B, primary biliary cirrhosis, primary sclerosing cholangitis, or autoimmune hepatitis.
  • A healthy donor liver can come from a deceased person or from a living person.
  • The donor's blood type must be compatible with the recipient's blood type, and the donor's liver must be of similar size to the recipient's current liver.
  • The donor organ may also be rejected by the recipient's immune system, so it is important to carefully match donor and recipient.

In which patients is liver transplant required? 

  • One of the biggest causes of liver disease is alcohol consumption.
  • Alcohol consumption can cause major liver diseases like non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, hepatitis C, hepatitis B, cirrhosis, alcoholic hepatitis, hepatitis A and hemochromatosis.
  • These diseases are the cause of liver failure.
  • Liver failure is a mortal condition that can lead to death.
  • Fortunately, liver transplants can be carried out for such patients since liver can be donated by a healthy person easily.
  • And the liver can regenerate; it would just regenerate in both the patient and the donor after some time.

What are the different types of liver transplant procedures?
