Total Liver Transplant:

For certain persons with liver cancer, a liver transplant may be the best option. Liver transplants may be a possibility for people who have tumors that can't be removed by surgery, either because of their location or because the liver has too much illness for the patient to accept removing a portion of it. In general, a transplant is used to treat individuals who have small tumors that have not expanded into surrounding blood arteries (either one tumor less than 5 cm wide or more than one tumor no larger than 3 cm).

Patients with resectable cancers may also find it to be an uncommon choice (cancers that can be removed completely).

The new transplanted liver will also function normally.

You'll be sedated during the procedure because liver transplant surgery is performed under general anesthesia.

To access your liver, the transplant surgeon makes a lengthy incision across your abdomen.

The size and placement of your incision depends on your surgeon's approach and your anatomy.

The surgeon removes your damaged liver and replaces it with a donor liver. Your blood arteries and bile ducts are then connected to the donor liver by the surgeon. Depending on your situation, surgery can take up to 12 hours. It is important that you choose the best hospital for liver cancer.
