Liver Transplant
There is a continuous shortage of donor livers and the higher percentage of liver disease, the waiting time for liver transplant patients is increasing every year. Hundreds of people die each year while waiting for a cadaveric liver to be offered. Donor livers also can be obtained from a family member who donates a portion of his/her liver to the patient.

Cross matching Blood type and liver size are essential in liver transplant. If there is a family member willing to donate a part of his/her liver, it is possible to save the patient’s life by removing a piece of liver from a living donor and transplanting it into a recipient.

Donor must be in good health and mentally prepared to donate the organ. If live donation is a feasible option for a patient, a donor evaluation will be performed after the recipient’s testing is completed. After testing the donor, the transplant team decides whether the donation can be performed. Live donors are often the only chance for children. Ideally, liver transplant should be between people whose blood types are matching. However, in emergency cases it could also be performed between non matching blood types, to save the patient’s life. But liver size matching is a must.

Organ transplantation can only be performed from a living donor who’s a documented relative of 1st to 4th degree, for international patients (Regulated and controlled by the Ministry of Health/Turkish Republic) therefore donor also need to travel along with the patient for liver transplant. The patient will have to provide documents/certificate from their local authorities to certify the relationship. Blood group of the recipient and donor should match.
