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.
