Liver Transplantation and Surgery

Liver transplantation surgery technique replaces a failing or diseased liver with one that is normal and healthy. Liver transplantation Surgery is the only cure for liver insufficiency or liver failure because no device or machine reliably performs all of the functions of the liver. The liver is an essential organ which serves critical functions including making proteins and blood clotting factors, metabolism of drugs and toxins, removing degradation products of normal body metabolism and synthesis of many important proteins and enzymes. There are three main types of liver transplant such as Orthotopic transplant, Living donor transplant, Split donation.
