A liver is the largest internal organ working, to keep us healthy and active. It helps to remove toxins from our blood, prevents infection and regulates the immune system. But if your liver is not healthy and you are experiencing something upsetting, that’s when you need to consider seeing a doctor.

Liver transplant is usually recommended for people who experience significant complications due to chronic liver disease. Moreover, sudden liver failure may occur.

Types Of Liver Donor

Living donor transplant means the donor is a willing person and is alive. The person donates either the left or right side (lobe) of their liver. Split donation involves transplantation of a liver from a recently deceased individual who died due to a brain injury or any other accident. Their liver is mostly a gift to the deserving person from the hospital or the relatives of the deceased.

Liver Transplant Surgery Time

A liver transplant surgery time usually falls between four to eight hours depending on the situation of the patient. This treatment begins with the removal and preparation of the donor’s liver and implantation of the new organ. Liver contains several key connections that must be looked after for the new organ to receive blood flow and other functions and then the new liver is sewed in the recipient’s body: First, blood flow is re-established by connecting the donor’s and the recipient’s portal veins. Next, arterial flow is connected by sewing the donors and recipients hepatic arteries. Lastly, biliary drainage is achieved by sewing the donor’s and recipient’s common bile ducts and then finally incision is closed through stitches

What Are The Survival Chances?

According to a study, people who have a liver transplant have an 89% percent chance of living after one year. The five-year survival rate is 75%. Sometimes the transplanted liver can fail, or the original disease may return. It may also vary from the transplant centres you chose, considering turkey and their level of treatment, the success rate is higher than the usual treatment centres people opt for.

If You Give A Part Of Your Liver

A person does not die or fall ill if they give a part of their liver. A small percentage of liver transplants are completed each year using a portion of a healthy liver from a living donor. Living donation is possible because the liver is the only organ that can regenerate itself. Any adult may be able to donate a portion of their liver to a child or another adult. Denying all the myths, a liver donation is not a threat to the donor’s life.
