Liver failure and transplant in children – Mayo Clinic News Network

A liver transplant is a surgical method that gets rid of a liver that no for a longer period functions properly and replaces it with a healthy liver from a deceased donor or a portion of a wholesome liver from a living donor.

The approach for liver transplant in kids is similar to the procedure for grown ups. But because young children with liver ailment deal with exceptional problems, it is vital to have transplant surgeons with considerable working experience in pediatric and adult liver transplantation.
