Title: Dr Naimish mehta - Procedure of Liver Transplant surgery

Procedure Of Liver Transplant surgery
What is liver transplant?

Liver Transplantation is a type of surgery which
is carried out to remove an infected or
dysfunctional liver and replacing it with a
functional and healthy liver. 

When a person has to get liver
transplant surgery?

There are other conditions like Bile Duct
diseases, primary biliary Cirrhosis, Atresia and
primary sclorosing which cause the liver to fail
because of excess bile juice secretion. Disease
like Wilson Disease and Hemochromatosis which are
hereditary diseases cause the Copper and Iron
levels in the liver to rise to dangerous levels


Your surgery may last from four to 12 hours
depending on your condition. Most patients who
have had previous surgeries remain in surgery
longer because of scar tissue accumulation.
During surgery, your damaged liver and
gallbladder will be removed and replaced with the
donor liver. Your gallbladder is not required and
won't be replaced.


After surgery, you will go directly to the
intensive care unit (ICU), usually for one or two
days. Immediately after surgery, a breathing tube
will be inserted to help you breathe. In most
cases the tube can be removed within 24 hours
after surgery. Many monitoring lines also will be
attached these, too, will be removed as you
become more stable. Depending on your condition,
you will be hospitalized for two to eight weeks
following the transplant.
