star star Jul 2021

Angela went above and beyond my expectations. She is very friendly and you can always feel at ease contacting her. She made sure I was comfortable with our choice of surgeon Dr. Can Karaca and set up a video call for me. Always ready to help and answer any questions (she would always be available despite the 7 hour time difference)! I wasn’t really sure about traveling to Istanbul, Turkey for my procedure until I met Angela and she explained everything from start to finish and stood behind her words to always be of assistance. Mind you I have been researching for months now for a good doctor and went back and forth between waiting 2 years to get my surgery done in Canada or even traveling to Mexico for it! I was thinking Turkey would be a difficult route due to time difference and the distance but I’m very happy I chose to go to Turkey with Flymedi and I’m glad my agent was Angela Sabou! Do not hesitate to work with Flymedi and especially request Angela if you can!!! - a very satisfied client

Adonis Fertility International Caring Professionals

After trying IVF unsuccessfully in the US for many years Maria from Adonis Fertility International gave me hope. I was very impressed by her work ethic and I trusted she would work hard at helping us become parents. Her communication was top-notch. I choose Adonis because of Maria and then worked with Amy, Nancy, and Ivanna and ALL were Amazing. Everything is broken down for you in steps and very organized. There was always someone there to answer a question you may. Its been a very smooth process, with all the legal documents and made transporting the biomaterial stress-free. We are still in our beginning stages and I will give another review at the end but everything so far has been excellent and I would recommend Adonis to any US couple looking to try IVF and hopefully become parents.

Excellent service

Excellent service. I was really hesitant at first, because I’ve never done anything like this before, but Kirstie did a great job of answering all my questions & concerns, in a timely manner. I would highly recommend using this service.

At the beginning, I was very hesitant about having my surgeries, especially the idea of having them in Turkey, which is a country located across the ocean of where I come from, the United States of America. When I initially started my research, I came across Flymedi, and I strongly believe that connecting with them was the best decision I have made in regards of having my desired surgeries. After entering my contact information, I was contacted from Flymedi by an agent named Abud. On one hand, Abud has been a great assist and support to my journey, as he was involved in every step throughout the process. He was very responsive to all my concerns and inquiries before and after the operations. On the other hand, everyone at the clinic that I was referred to (EstEthica) was very nice and welcoming. The in-person consultant on site (Lamia) was extremely helpful and kind. She, along with the whole clinic staff, made me feel so comfortable and made the whole trip seem as smooth as possible, despite the discomfort after the surgeries. In terms of the results, I can not speak of this just yet as it has only been a week since I have had my operations. However, I will definitely come back within a couple of months to update my review and speak about the results and any other additional notes along the way. In a nutshell, all I can say that I am grateful for everything so far, and I truly appreciate everyone that was involved in this process! P.S. as a word of advice, if you are having a hair transplant operation, I highly recommend having it at least 3 - 4 days before your departure flight back home, as the post operation instructions are a bit intense and not being in a rush would significantly help with the recovery process.

Recommended For Liver Transplant

A liver transplantation technique is suggested for people experiencing liver disease in the end phase of acute liver failure. 

Not Recommended For Liver Transplant

Liver transplantation operation is not suggested for people experiencing heart or lung illness, infections, for instance, osteomyelitis or tuberculosis, cancer, or other life-risking circumstances.

Overview

Liver transplant surgery, otherwise called hepatic transplantation, is a practice in which liver of the patient is changed with all or some of the healthy liver of a donor. Orthotopic liver transplantation surgery is one of the most widely recognized kinds of liver transplantation techniques - the new liver is situated in the equivalent anatomic area as the original, diseased one. In Heterotopic liver transplantation surgery, a portion of the new liver is stitched onto a portion of the diseased liver.


The standard list of liver transplant had patients holding up about 232 days, for liver transplantation surgery. Living donor liver transplant surgery can be carried out by utilizing the liver of a spouse, volunteer, sibling, child, parent, or any individual from the family.

Preparation

The patient should get into some detailed tests before receiving a liver transplant procedure: 

● Heart tests
● Blood and urine tests
● Health assessments

How It Is Performed

Criteria of liver transplant declare that a living donor organ transplant can merely be utilized from kin up to the fourth degree – this incorporates the patient’s family members, the patient’s spouse and the family members of the spouse. In some health facilities, volunteers can also be donors for the liver transplant operation. Other criteria of liver transplant involve: 

● The donor must be healthy
● Having a congruent blood type
● Age in the range of 18 and 60 

● Being similar to proportions with the receiver

The operation is carried out under general anesthesia. About 55 to 70% of the right lobe of a living donor is detached and stitched onto the receivers prevailing liver. The liver of the donor will begin to revive immediately, achieving full capacity in about 4-6 weeks. The transplanted liver will likewise return to 100% capacity and proportion, however, it will take extra time – in certain cases recovery from a liver transplant takes up to a year. After the operation is finished, the receiver should pass two days in intensive care and 21 days in a transplant recovery zone. The transplant donor will likewise need to stay about 10 days in the hospital. Usual blood tests will be necessary after the transplant.

Risks

Liver transplantation is a somewhat dangerous operation, and complications may sometimes occur, both for the receiver and donor. Donors can encounter a risk of death with 0.5 to 1% possibility while or after the procedure.

Complications of liver transplant can involve:

● Bleeding
● The development of blood clots
● Infection
● Donated liver failure
● Donated liver rejection
● Bile duct complications

When the patient carefully follows all the liver transplant rules, and the operation is performed at a reliable, modern center, the odds of these complications taking place are diminished.

Side Effects

Because special immune system depressant medications are used after liver transplantation operation, patients can experience various side effects, involving: 

● Vomiting and nausea
● High blood pressure and cholesterol
● Anemia
● Arthritis
● Diabetes
● Tremors
● Diarrhea and others 

Success Rates

The survival rate of liver transplant following five years is 78% for transplants with a living donor, while the life expectancy of liver transplant following 15 years is 58%. The success rate of a liver transplant as well relies upon the sort of disease the receiver conveys, age and capability to pursue post-operation rules.

Before And After

Liver transplantation receivers must use immunosuppressive medications whole of their lives. Smoking and alcohol are forbidden after a liver transplant operation. Steady cancer tests are necessary also, as immunosuppressive medications rise the possibility of cancer emerging. The patient should do consistent checkups after a liver transplantation operation – initially week by week and then not as much of frequently.

Faq

– How long does a liver transplant last?
In some cases, transplants have lasted up to 30 years. 58% of patients live another 15 years and 48% of patients can live up to 18 years. In recent years, survival rates of liver transplant have improved greatly.

– Does a partial liver transplant provide the same outcomes as a full transplant?
Yes, living donor liver transplants provide the same success rate as a regular full size liver transplantation procedure.

– How many patients usually experience liver transplant rejection?
Liver transplant rejection affects around 15 to 26% of receivers. Immunosuppressive medications are usually administered to all patients.
