by Shri Niwas Prajapati Digital Marketing

The word liver is derived from a Greek word called Hepat. The Liver is a vital organ of human body. It is located in vertebrates. Functions of the liver include detoxification of various metabolites, synthetization of protein in body and production of biochemical vital for digestion. Other vital functions involve maintaining glycogen storage, de-compositing red blood cells (RBC) and generating hormones. The Liver is the only organ in the human body that has tendency to grow cells and rebuild itself.

Presently there are no alternatives to compensate liver function for long-term, albeit for short-term liver dialysis technique can be used. As of 2018, the only technique to treat liver failure is liver transplantation. Liver or Hepatic transplantation is the substitution of the affected liver with a healthy liver from another person (living donors between the ages of 18 and 55 years of age, compatible in terms of blood type). Average length of stay of recipient is 21 days and that of donor is 10 days. Liver transplantation is opted for the patient with acute liver failure or last stage liver disease. Liver transplantation is required when functions of the liver have defected to a level that it has lost all its tendency to regenerate. Reasons of liver failure include any long-standing liver disease, generalized diseases, severejaundice, liver failure, Primary Biliary Cirrhosis, Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, hepatitis C virusoverdose, Hepatoblastoma (children), hepatocellular carcinoma (adults) etc.
