A Life-Giving Moment!!!
Despite the fact that Liver Transplantation is the only best option that is available for a patient who is diagnosed with either end-stage liver cirrhosis or cancer, statistics reveals that at present, in India, liver transplantations performed are only around 1,800-1,900 while over 2 lakh people die out of liver disease every year.
Nevertheless, recent advancements have made it possible to develop an alternative strategy to increase the donor pool. Dr. Karthik Mathivanan’s recently performed a ABOi Liver transplant and the cross-blood transplantation risks were around 2-3% higher than that of the regular procedure. The surgery had a success rate of 90% which is a milestone in the field of Liver Transplantation.
