New liver transplantation technology being used in hospitals

May 8, 2018

Liver transplantation is the accepted treatment for end-stage-liver failure and is the last option for the patient.

One of the biggest challenges in the transplantation field is the availability of organs, as the number of people that need a transplant far outweighs the number of organs available.

There is therefore a big need for increasing the number of organs that are suitable for transplantation as many patients will die while waiting for an organ to become available.
