Liver Transplant

Liver Transplant is a major operation that takes place only in a specialized transplant center. During a Liver Transplantation, the surgeon removes the diseased liver and replaces it with a healthy one. The patient having end-stage liver disease can only be treated by a Liver Transplant. It is of mainly two types: DECEASED Donor Liver Transplant (DDLT), and LIVE Donor Liver Transplant (LDLT).

For most transplants the livers come from donors who have died. This type of Donor is called as DECEASED Donor. Sometimes, a healthy person donates part of his or, her liver for close relatives this is called as LIVING Donor. All donated Livers of Deceased/ Living donors are tested before subjecting to transplant surgery. The testing makes sure that the donor’s liver should work as it should, matches the patient’s blood type, and is of right size, so it has the best chance of working in the body.

Yashoda Hospitals’ Institute of Liver Transplant & Hepatobiliary Diseases’ evaluation team includes cardiologist, Nephrologist, Pulmonologist, Anaesthetist, Dentist, Nutritionist etc. The team has to give medical fitness clearance, on basis of which the transplant is planned. In case of Living Donor Liver Transplant, the donor safety is of utmost importance and hence, the living donor evaluation is more extensive and elaborate. The Institute of Liver Transplant & Hepatobiliary Diseases has a high success rate, which is on par with the best centers in the world.

Evaluation before Liver Transplant

If a liver transplant is recommended, the integrated liver care team of Yashoda Institute of Liver Transplant & Hepatobiliary Diseases, will evaluate the recipient as well as donor thoroughly before performing the transplant. A battery of investigations are done to ensure the fitness of the recipient and the donor. The vital organs- Heart, Lungs, Kidney and all others should be in good shape prior to the transplant.

The team that includes Cardiologist, Nephrologist, Pulmonologist, Anaesthetist, Dentist, Nutritionist etc. have to give medical fitness clearance, on basis of which the transplant is planned.

In case of Living Donor Liver Transplant, the donor safety is of utmost importance and hence, the living donor evaluation is more extensive and elaborate.

Gallstones are most common among overweight, women and elderly.

May 13, 2016 05:00

Gallstones form in the gallbladder, which is located just beneath the liver. Gallstones are hardened deposits of digestive fluid. Gallstones are removed by surgery. Gallbladder produces bile and releases it into the small intestine.  CAUSES It is considered that gallstones are formed due to too much of cholesterol and bilirubin in bile. If the bile doesn’t get emptied, it leads to concentration and formation of gallstones. Gallstones are of two types, cholesterol gallstones and pigment (bilirubin) gallstones.  SYMPTOMS When the gallstones lodges in the bile duct and causes a blockage, the person experiences sudden and intense pain in the center of the abdomen, back and shoulder pain.  RISK FACTORS AND COMPLICATIONS A number of factors lead to the development of gallstones. Some of the prominent factors that pose the risk of gallstones are, being overweight, high cholesterol and low fiber diet, uncontrolled diabetes, and cholesterol lowering medications. The presence of gallstones leads to complications like, inflammation of the gallbladder, and blockage of bile and pancreatic ducts. Gallstones enhance the risk of gallbladder cancer. TESTS & DIAGNOSIS If there are any symptoms of gallstones, the doctor may advice for abdominal ultrasound and CT scan to create pictures of the gallbladder. An MRI and ERCP may also be recommended to determine the blockage of bile duct, and the presence of gallstones. Blood tests are also done to check the presence of any infections, jaundice, pancreatitis and other complications. TREATMENTS AND DRUGS Based on the symptoms and diagnosis of gallstones, the doctor recommends for gallbladder surgery. During the surgery the gallbladder is completely removed. The bile from the liver isn’t stored in the gallbladder; it is channeled directly to the small intestine. The removal of gallbladder does not affect digestion of food; however there may be few instances of diarrhea, which is often temporary.  Medications are also advised for gallstones, the effectiveness of which may be seen over a long period of time. Medications are advised for gallstones only when patients have other complications, and are not ready for gallbladder surgery. Know more about symptoms, causes, treatment, diagnosis and risk factors of gallstones or gall bladder stones.
