I recently had a rhinoplasty in Turkey, it was so hard to find the right surgeon to get it done by, and also to even get the courage to do it!! but fortunately I got in contact with Nadia, she helped me alot through this process, she is not only sweet but also professional and she was always available and responding to my questions... So far it was a good experience with Flymedi! Nothing to complain about! The process went smooth just as they offered me :)

Hi, I just recently had surgery and before I could decide the best safest choice for me. I googled a lot! Came across Flymedi and they made the overseas surgery bookings including hotel so much easier. My health consultant is very kind and sweet and still after the surgery, she still checks up on me. I am very satisfied with the results of the surgery and the clinic that they chose! This is mainly for those like me who want to have a certain surgery done that perhaps don't exist in the country you reside in. Flymedi helped me with finding a fit clinic, booked hotel and driver to pick me up and also drop me off to all the destinations such as the Airport. I had this surgery in late November 2019 in Istanbul, I highly recommend Flymedi to anyone who wants to be safe, satisfied and happy! Thank You to Fatima at Flymedi for all her help and Big Thank You to Flymedi for existing! You've definitely made this surgery and journey for me much more easy and comfortable!

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.
