A liver transplant surgery is suggested in severe cases of liver failure. It is also considered when the patient does not respond to other medications or medical procedures. There are mainly three types of liver transplants.
An orthotopic transplant is procedure where the whole diseased liver is removed and replaced with the donated liver from a cadaveric donor.
During the procedure, the surgeon makes an incision in abdomen. The diseased liver is removed and replaced with the donor healthy liver. The donor liver is then connected to the recipient’s blood vessels and the bile ducts. Finally, the incision is closed with suture and then covered with sterile dressing.
A living donor transplant procedure involves removal of a part (right or left lobe of liver) of healthy liver from a living person and then transplanted to the patient. The donor must be the patient’s close family member.
During the procedure, the surgeon makes an incision in abdomen. The diseased liver is removed and replaced with the donor healthy liver. The donor liver is then connected to the recipient’s blood vessels and the bile ducts. Finally, the incision is closed with suture and then covered with sterile dressing. After transplantation, the donor’s remaining lobe and transplanted lobe quickly regenerates themselves.
A split liver transplant procedure involves transplanting right and left lobe of the liver from a recently deceased person to an adult and a child respectively. That means, the donated liver of a deceased person is split into two for transplantation. The larger right lobe is transplanted to adult and the smaller left lobe is transplanted to a child.
During the procedure, the surgeon makes an incision in abdomen. The diseased liver is removed and replaced with the donor healthy liver. The donor liver is then connected to the recipient’s blood vessels and the bile ducts. Finally, the incision is closed with suture and then covered with sterile dressing. After transplantation, the transplanted lobe quickly regenerates itself.
