About the Donor
There are two types of donors for liver transplant
- Live Donor - As the name suggests, a live donor is a living person who is healthy. In India, the law says that the donor should be a close blood relative of the patient.
- Cadeveric Donor - A cadaver is a brain dead person. Donation of liver is possible if the family member of the person wishes to donate the liver before the life support is discontinues.
In India there is long waiting list for Cadaveric Donors since cadaveric organs are not frequently available and the wait for such donors may extend to several months. For Overseas patients, only living donor liver transplants are recommended, which requires them to bring a healthy, willing donor (a close relative or family member only) with them when they come for a transplant. Cadaveric transplants are not practical for overseas patients. The success rate for Living Donor Liver Transplantation is more than the Cadaveric Donor Liver Transplantation.
