Frequently Asked Questions
"At this time, transplantation is the only cure for liver failure because no device or machine reliably performs all of the functions of the liver. People who require liver transplants have acute liver failure but more typically chronic liver failure.
Acute liver failure occurs when a previously healthy liver suffers injury resulting in liver insufficiency. In chronic liver failure, there have been repeated injuries and repairs to the liver, typically over many years. Chronic liver failure can be caused by viral hepatitis, autoimmune diseases, alcohol abuse, obesity, metabolic conditions, genetic liver diseases, liver cancer or another disease. This permanent and end-stage of scarring are termed cirrhosis, and the liver can no longer repair itself. Medications can decrease the symptoms caused by liver failure, but liver transplantation is the only permanent cure."
Primary liver cancer or hepatocellular carcinoma (also called hepatoma or HCC) is one of the major reasons for liver transplantation. Patients with HCC that are detected early enough for transplant are evaluated for liver transplantation similar to other patients, with additional careful evaluation of the extent of the tumour. Transplant candidates with HCC are then placed on the liver transplant waiting list. Additional treatments are often needed while the patients wait on transplants.
A major advantage of transplantation for HCC is that it results in complete removal of the cirrhotic liver that could harbour additional HCC tumours or develop new tumours in the future. For this reason, the chance of cancer recurrence after treatment is lower in patients who receive a liver transplant compared to patients who receive surgical resection as the curative treatment for HCC.
Liver transplantation at our centre is very successful, and our patient outcomes are the best in the region. Most people are able to return to their daily routine within three months after the transplant, and many of them even earlier. Recipients have been known to live a normal life 30 years after the operation. Transplant success depends on a number of variables, including health status at the time of transplant, age and recurrent disease. Transplant recipients also directly contribute to the success of their transplant.
The number one cause of organ failure following a transplant is due to patients not following the prescribed immunosuppression medication regimen. Careful attention to medication schedules, lifestyle changes, infection-avoidance techniques and close follow-up with your transplant team and primary care physician can help ensure a good outcome.
With liver transplant surgery, the risks are those that are common to all forms of major surgery or relate to technical difficulties in removing the diseased liver or implanting the donor’s liver. Immediately after the operation, risks include bleeding, poor function of the grafted liver, bile leaks and infections. We monitor the patient carefully for several weeks after surgery for rejection. Rejection becomes less common with time.
