Liver Transplant

Liver transplantation is necessary when the liver functions are damaged beyond the body’s capacity to regenerate. In children and adults with liver failure due to long standing liver disease, primary liver tumors or generalized diseases, a liver transplantation may be potentially curative.

In children, a common reason for liver transplantation is biliary atresia in which the bile ducts that transport the bile from the liver to the gall bladder and help in digestion are under developed.

In adults, the most frequent causes of liver disease that leads to a need for a liver transplant is chronic infection with hepatitis C virus. Other conditions that may be a cause of liver transplant include Hepatitis B virus, Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, Primary Biliary Cirrhosis, Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis.
