Introduction to Liver Transplant

 

A liver transplant is a surgery to replace a diseased liver with a healthy liver from another person. A whole liver may be transplanted, or just part of one. In most cases the healthy liver will come from an organ donor who is brain dead.

The liver is the only organ in the body that can replace lost or injured tissue (regenerate). The donor’s liver will soon grow back to normal size after surgery. The part that is received as a new liver will also grow to normal size in a few weeks.

Need for Liver Transplant

 

A liver transplant may be offered to patients with the end-stage liver disease after other treatment options have been exhausted. Some of the common causes that lead to Liver transplant are:

  • Acute Liver Failure
    Sustains 80 to 90% damage to the liver cells and may lead to coma
  • Viral Hepatitis
    A highly contagious liver disease that causes the liver to fail completely
  • Alcoholic Liver Disease
    Due to alcohol abuse, scars and cirrhosis occur causing the liver to stop functioning
  • Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
    Build-up of fat in the liver that causes inflammation and damages cells in the liver
  • Primary Liver Cancer
    Cancer cells that have grown deep into the tissue halting any function of the liver

Pre-Liver Transplant Evaluation

All patients wishing to undergo a Liver Transplant have to undergo a rigorous evaluation process. The specific tests, procedures and consultations one may undergo include:

 

A general health exam

Including routine cancer screening tests, to evaluate the overall health

Laboratory tests

Including blood and urine tests to assess the health of the organs, including the liver

Heart tests

To determine the health of the patient’s cardiovascular system

Imaging tests

 Such as an ultrasound of the liver

Nutrition counselling with dietitians

Who assess the nutritional status and make recommendations regarding nutritional intake before and after transplant

Psychological evaluation

To assess and treat any underlying issues, such as depression or anxiety, and determine whether the patient fully understands the risks of a liver transplant

Types of Liver Transplant

There are three main ways a liver transplant can be carried out:

  • Deceased organ donation transplant – involves transplanting a liver that has been removed from a person who died recently
  • Living donor liver transplant – a section of liver is removed from a living donor; because the liver can regenerate itself, both the transplanted section and the remaining section of the donor’s liver are able to regrow into a normal-sized liver
  • Split donation transplant – a liver is removed from a person who died recently and is split into two pieces; each piece is transplanted into a different person, where they will grow to a normal size
