This article was originally published in Clinica
UK doctors have performed the National Health Service's first transplant of a significant, functional portion of the liver of a living donor, it was reported on July 2. The operation involved the removal of 60% of the organ. The success of the procedure is seen as a breakthrough for its potential in saving the significant number of terminal liver failure patients who die waiting for a donated organ. In the Leeds city area, where the procedure was performed, 20% of patients die while on the transplant list. The technique could save an estimated 100 patients per year across the NHS.
