live liver donation

Posted by @stmoskowitz in Transplants, Jun 25, 2012

I would like to be considered as a donor but there doesn't seem to be a vehicle to find those in need the eay that there is for kidney patients. This is odd gioven that the needd for liver is often more acute and dangerous as they do not have the option of dialysis to hold on until a donor comes along

As ooposed to living kidney you mentioned living liver is much more complicated and must be approached most carefully. This may help as a quick overview to get you started. http://www.a-s-t.org/files/pdf/patient.../english/AST-EdBroGiveLiver-ENG.pdf
