Liver transplant is unfortunately the final treatment option for people suffering from end-stage chronic liver disease. It may also be a treatment option in rare cases of sudden failure of a previously healthy liver. In this surgical procedure a liver that no longer functions properly (liver failure) is replaced with a healthy liver from a deceased donor or a partial healthy liver from a living donor. A liver transplant is also called as a hepatic transplant. The five-year survival rate after liver transfer is around 75 percent.
Similarly an intestine transplant is the process of removing a patient’s diseased small intestine and replacing it with a healthy donor intestine. A preferred treatment option for children who suffers from irreversible intestinal failure for restoring digestive function. However, intestinal transplants are most challenging and least frequently performed organ transplants. Over the last one and a half decades, intestinal transplant outcome has shown significant improvement and number of transplants has steadily increased over the years.
