Frequently asked questions about liver transplant

 

Living donor liver transplantation can be an alternative to deceased donor liver transplantation for some patients on the waiting list. The ideal candidates are patients who foresee a long wait on the deceased transplant list and experience complications of liver disease, such as ascites and encephalopathy and patients diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma.

Los pacientes que tienen cirrosis con complicaciones de enfermedad hepática terminal en la que no existe un tratamiento alternativo médico razonable son elegibles para la evaluación de trasplante de hígado y la colocación en la lista de espera. Los pacientes con otras afecciones también pueden cumplir los criterios para un trasplante de hígado y ser considerados para la lista. Estas condiciones incluyen:

  • Síndrome hepatopulmonar: problemas respiratorios graves causados ​​por cirrosis
  • Hipertensión pulmonar hepática: presión alta en los pulmones causada por cirrosis
  • Prurito que no se puede tratar
  • Tumores que no se pueden extirpar quirúrgicamente
  • Errores innatos del metabolismo como la amiloidosis y la oxalosis
  • Cáncer hepático primario sin evidencia de diseminación fuera del hígado
  • Episodios recurrentes de colangitis bacteriana
  • Infección recurrente de los conductos biliares hepáticos
p>The time you will wait for a transplant is highly variable. If you have a live liver transplant, your surgery will be scheduled. If you are waiting for a deceased donor, your wait may be difficult to predict and can range from days to years.

La mejor opción de tratamiento depende de su diagnóstico porque la enfermedad hepática puede desarrollarse y progresar de diferentes maneras. El tratamiento de la cirrosis hepática es la razón más común para un trasplante, pero usted necesita un trasplante de hígado si su hígado está fallando, está dañado hasta el punto en que no realiza sus funciones normales y las intervenciones médicas ya no son efectivas.
