Liver transplantation : risks, process and statistics

Chronic liver failure may be caused by a variety of conditions. The most common cause of chronic liver failure is scarring of the liver (cirrhosis), a process in which scar tissue replaces normal liver tissue and impairs liver function. Cirrhosis is the most frequently cited reason for a liver transplant.

Major causes of cirrhosis leading to liver failure and liver transplant include :

  • Hepatitis B and C.
  • Alcoholic liver disease.
  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
  • Genetic diseases affecting the liver (including hemochromatosis and Wilson’s disease).

Diseases that affect the bile ducts (the tubes that carry bile away from the liver), such as primary biliary cirrhosis, primary sclerosing cholangitis and biliary atresia. Biliary atresia is the most common reason for liver transplant among children.
Most people live more than 10 years after a liver transplant and many live for up to 20 years or more
