of the liver due to hepatitis C is a frequent reason for liver transplants.
Even some liver cancers can, if they are detected early enough, be cured with a
transplant. Transplantation is a last resort when other treatments have failed
to stabilise liver function or slow down the progress of cirrhosis. In cases of
severe cirrhosis or hepatocellular carcinoma, a liver transplant may be the
only viable treatment option.
transplantation is still a serious and highly risky intervention, even if
mortality and morbidity rates are clearly improved after transplantation.
