Swap Liver Transplant

Overview

A patient needing a healthy liver but cannot find one that’s compatible with the recipient normally has no other option but to undergo swap liver transplantation. Until recently, any organs including the liver that was required for transplantation, was generally provided by the relatives of a brain-dead donor.

Through this method of liver transplantation, many patients have a chance to live and return to a state of healthy and normal activity. With advancements in surgical techniques and more effective drugs, liver transplantation has become more successful. These factors have also contributed to giving the patient a higher post-operative survival rate while also increasing his quality of life.

The success of kidney transplantations gave a fillip to swap liver transplantations. Now, it is commonly used to save the lives of patients requiring healthy livers.

The Swap Liver Transplantation Method

This method of liver transplantation works well when the living related donor’s liver is incompatible with that of the recipient. In such cases, a swapping of donors between two pairs of people is possible.

In this method, there is a very easy give and take understanding between these two pairs of people, where each pair comprises a giver and a taker. Each pair gets a healthy liver that they are compatible with. According to Indian law, this method is only allowed when donors are near relatives.
