Liver is an important organ of the  human body and this is essential for carrying out various bodily functions. This is very much important to keep the liver functioning well.  Liver helps in converting nutrients from foods into hormones, and vitamins that our body requires. Liver also assists in the production of bile ducts what is required for fat and nutrients digestion. If these vital organs of human body get damaged severely then it needs liver transplantation. You can find many hospitals and Liver Transplant Surgeon who provide best facility for liver transplant. In liver transplantation, only a small portion of liver is required and for its regenerative property, it grows back into a fully developed liver. 

Who need liver transplant:

If the Liver Transplant Consultant India decide for liver plantation, then the patient needs to go through some blood test along with a series of tests. These test results will determine whether he/she needs to have liver plantation. In that case, the overall condition of other internal organs such as heart, kidney, lungs and immune system will be taken into consideration for deciding if the patient is ready for the transplant or not. This liver transplant involves two types of donors. One can be alive who are willing to donate her/his liver and second donor can be a dead person in case his/her family allows organ donation. The liver transplant cost in India may vary depending upon different hospitals and it can depend on various factors too such as the condition of the liver, the health tests, hospital accommodation for both donor and recipient and other medication etc.

In this condition as per the Liver Transplant Specialist,  the healthy tissue is get replaced by scar tissue and creates partial blockage in the blood flow through the liver. This condition can be caused by excessive alcohol consumption, some of the diseases like chronic viral Hepatitis B, C, hepatic tumor and other genetic disorder.

In this condition, the bile duct between the liver and small intestine is absent.
