What I need to know about Liver Transplantation 


Liver transplantation is the replacement of a diseased liver with a healthy liver allograft.

An organ transplant is the transplantation of a whole or partial organ from one body to another, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or failing organ with a working one from the donor. Organ donors can be living, or cadaveric (dead).
