The liver is the only organ in the body able to regenerate, or grow back. A transplanted segment of a liver can grow to normal size within a few months.
During a living-donor liver transplant, a portion of a healthy person’s liver (the donor) is removed and transplanted into another person (the recipient) to replace their unhealthy liver.
Livers for transplantation come from either a deceased or living donor. Most donated livers come from deceased donors, often victims of severe, accident-related head injury that results in brain death.
Transjugular Intrahepatic Portosystemic Shunt (TIPS) relieves the high blood pressure in the portal vein (called portal hypertension) that often occurs in the setting of liver cirrhosis.
