Journal of Liver is one of the best journals in liver transplantation. The journal presents an education series providing updates relevant to on digestion, secretion, absorption, metabolism, as well as, an on-going annotated research review of relevant papers published elsewhere thus making the journal a unique and even more valuable reference resource.
Living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) has emerged in recent decades as a critical surgical option for patients with end stage liver disease, such as cirrhosis and/or hepatocellular carcinoma often attributable to one or more of the following: long-term alcohol abuse, long-term untreated hepatitis C infection, long-term untreated hepatitis B infection. The concept of living donor liver transplantation is based on the remarkable regenerative capacities of the human liver and the widespread shortage of cadaveric livers for patients awaiting transplant. In living donor liver transplantation, a piece of healthy liver is surgically removed from a living person and transplanted into a recipient, immediately after the recipients diseased liver has been entirely removed.
