Liver Transplantation and surgery
Liver transplantation surgery is a technique to replace an injured or diseased liver with a healthy liver obtained from a healthy person. The liver is involved in various metabolic functions that includes metabolism of drugs and toxins, removing degradation products of normal body metabolism and synthesis of many important proteins and enzymes (such as factors necessary for blood to clot). Surgeons or Doctors suggest liver transplant surgery to the patients who suffer from chronic Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) or Chronic liver failure. This surgery carries a risk of complications such as infection, liver inflammation, blood clots, liver rejection, memory and thinking problems.
