Who Needs a Transplant

Liver transplantation becomes necessary when the liver’s functionality drops to 80-90%, leaving patients with limited options. The need for a liver transplant varies between adults and children. There are several conditions that may warrant a liver transplant, including chronic liver disease, acute liver failure, and certain types of liver cancers. The following conditions can lead to acute or chronic liver failure, making a liver transplant a potential solution:

    Chronic Liver Diseases:

    These conditions result in gradual liver damage, often attributed to factors such as:

    • Hepatitis C (HCV) infection
    • Hepatitis B (HBV) infection
    • Alcoholic liver disease
    • Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
    • Autoimmune hepatitis, biliary cirrhosis, Wilson’s disease, among others.

    Acute Liver Failure:

    This is a sudden and severe condition where an individual with no prior liver problems experiences liver failure within a short period, typically 2-4 weeks. Common causes of acute liver failure in India include:

    • Hepatitis E virus infection, especially during pregnancy
    • Certain medications like ATT or paracetamol
    • Exposure to rat poison
    • Conditions like Wilson’s disease and autoimmune hepatitis
    • Unknown factors leading to liver failure.

    Liver Cancer:

    Some types of liver cancers can be treated with a liver transplant, including:

    • Primary liver cancer known as Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC)
    • Primary bile duct cancer (Cholangiocarcinoma)
    • Metastatic neuroendocrine tumors (NET)

    While most cases of liver disease can be attributed to specific causes, approximately 10-15% of cases remain unexplained. If you’re concerned about your liver health, consider consulting with Dr. Vivek Vij, a leading liver surgeon in India.
