Which is because of which India, has the largest discrepancy between the number of people who are in desperate need for livers transplantation at this moment and the number of people who are available to donate their livers.

The reality, on the other hand is that Indian surgeons are able to perform only around 1,500 liver transplants every year.

This is because there is a lack of organ donors in India. Between the time period of September 2004 and July 2016, 200 liver transplants have been performed on 167 children in India. Fifty of them were done in starting 6 years and 150 in subsequent 6 years.

With a mean stay of only 7 days most of the donors were discharged. The leading indications for which liver transplants are needed are

  • cholestatic liver disease, which constitutes for 46% of them

It is then followed by

  • metabolic liver disease which constitutes 33%of them
  • 5% are because of acute liver failure/acute on chronic liver failure
  • 8% because Biliary leakage

These are the most common surgical complications according to the surgeons; All of themcan be managed by surgeries.

It often happens in 14.5%, 25% and 17% cases of small children that Sepsis, acute rejection and CMV hepatitis in first 6 months are. Post-transplant lymph proliferative disease are also reported to be very common.

Dr. Giriraj Bora tells that for small children re-transplant rate in India is as less 1%. The overall 1 year survival rate is 84% and 4 year actuarial survival is 67%.

There is no statistical significant difference between children who weigh more than 10 kg vs. who weigh less than 10 kg.

The outcome in acute liver failure does not differ significantly between those who have chronic liver failure and those with chronic liver disease.

Indian Liver transplant surgeons have improved the surgical techniques in India. And it is over time, that the quality of the intensive care in India has been started to be given to patients who need a liver transplant.

Apart from the increase in experience, the quality of services that need to be given post the transplant have also been focused on.

Being the best liver transplant specialist in Gurgaon, Dr. Giriraj Bora explains that even though liver seems to look like a single organ but in reality it has 8 different lobes and therefor it can be separated into these certain lobes.

Usually the donor’s right half of the liver is donated if he is an adult to adult liver transplant. Because of latest techniques and gadgetsliver’s division into right and left has now become possible.

It is easy for a living donor to easily donate his liver safely as the remaining left side will eventually grow back to around 80 percent of liver’s original size within few weeks and it would come quite close to the original size within a time period of few months.

There are lack of facilities for Liver transplant in several countries of the world and this has prompted many foreign patients to come to India for liver transplants
