The Silent Organ
Your body cannot function if your liver stops working. Unfortunately, you remain largely unaware that your liver is damaged because there are no indicators until the damage is severe. You could need a liver transplant if your own liver can no longer eliminate drugs, toxic substances from your body; make immune factors that help you resist infections, or make new body proteins. Liver diseases such as advanced cirrhosis, liver cancers, inherited and congenital diseases and the like are common reasons for a Liver Transplant. Contrary to popular perception, liver transplant is not a last resort; the procedure is curative when performed earlier in the disease phase.
The secret to a successful transplant
The liver is the second most-transplanted organ. During liver transplant surgery, surgeons remove the patient’s diseased liver and replace it with a healthy liver from a donor. The donor-liver could come from a cadaver or a living donor (Cadaveric liver transplant or Living donor liver transplant). Most Liver transplants are done with a cadaveric organ. The success of a transplant depends on the condition of the donor-liver and the conditions under which the transplant has been done. With the right facilities and expertise, over 90% of adults and about 95% of children who undergo a liver transplant survive the surgery and go on to lead normal, productive lives.

An Integrated Approach
Bleeding is one of the biggest complications in liver surgery. A crucial aspect of liver surgery, therefore, is controlling, regulating and managing blood flow and clotting. MIOT’s liver transplant surgeons do this with cutting-edge equipment such as the Intra-op Cell Salvage Device, Rapid Infuser System, Cavitron Ultrasonic Suction Aspirator, Intra-operative Ultrasound, Veno-venous Bypass Circuit and ROTEM Thromboelastogram, which help to control and monitor bleeding, conserve the patient’s blood and preserve circulation of blood to the heart. This integrated approach has earned MIOT International recognition as a referral centre for liver transplantation.
Fighting infection and infection control are paramount in transplant surgery. At MIOT International, every care is taken to create a completely sterile environment. Laminar air-flow and HEPA filters ensure that the air in the OTs, ICUs and recovery areas is clean, fresh and germ-free. Intelligent sensor-based technology maintains a 99.9% bacteria-free environment in the state-of-the-art, modular, dedicated twin-operation suites (a facility available in very few liver transplant centres in India) and adjoining surgical ICUs. This limits exposure to the rest of the hospital and offers an added layer of protection. The Automated Central Sterile Supply Unit ensures that there is zero manual handling of materials used in our OTs, ICUs and patient rooms. Leuco-depleted blood and blood components are provided to patients requiring blood transfusions to eliminate the risks of infection in the treatment of liver disease.

For them, every day is a challenge: while they wait for a donor organ to become available, through the surgery and their recovery.
