Liver transplantation is a crucial surgery for kids facing severe liver disease that can't be treated with medication.

When liver failure strikes children, whether from infancy or later, a liver transplant is the best solution. Successful childhood liver transplant surgeries are conducted in various countries and clinics worldwide.

Why do children need liver transplants?

Children of all ages may experience sudden liver failure due to various reasons. Despite multiple tests, doctors may struggle to pinpoint the cause behind this condition.

While liver diseases and failure are more common in older individuals, it's not uncommon for children or infants to face liver failure.

Worldwide, pediatric liver transplantation is frequently carried out for children with biliary atresia, which is characterized by a lack of bile ducts. Other cases include viral hepatitis leading to acute liver failure, metabolic diseases (such as Wilson disease, galactosemia, tyrosinemia, and urea-cycle defects), autoimmune hepatitis triggered by drugs and toxins, and surgeries for conditions like cholestatic diseases, hepatitis, cancers (such as HCC and Hepatoblastoma), vascular issues (like Budd-Chiari syndrome and venocclusive disease), and cryptogenic cirrhosis causing chronic liver failure.

Fortunately, pediatric liver transplants can be performed safely. Successful transplantation is a life-saving operation that can cure many cases of childhood liver failure.

What are some of the symptoms of liver disease in children?

Many newborns may have jaundice, a yellow tint in their skin and eyes, signaling their liver isn't fully developed to clear bilirubin from the blood. Fortunately, most babies overcome this naturally in a few weeks. If not, it might hint at a potential liver issue.

Signs that may signal a need for a liver transplant in infants include dark urine, pale or light-colored stools, a bloated belly, weight loss, and ongoing jaundice. In more severe instances, additional symptoms such as tiredness, fluid retention in the abdomen, vomiting, and black stools may become noticeable.

Diseases leading to liver transplant

Not every liver disease requires a transplant. Evaluation process determines if your child's condition necessitates a liver transplant. Diseases that may lead to a transplant include:

  • Biliary Atresia

  • Autoimmune Hepatitis

  • Alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency

  • Cystic Fibrosis Liver Disease

  • Tyrosinemia

  • Viral hepatitis

  • Hepatic Drug toxicity

  • Hepatoblastoma

  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma

  • Metabolic defects in the liver causing damage to other organs

Biliary atresia tops the list as the most common liver disease necessitating transplantation.

How is a pediatric liver transplant performed?

Liver transplant surgery in children is a usual procedure, similar to adults. When a donor liver is ready, necessary tests are conducted to prepare the patient. The surgery, performed under general anesthesia, involves making a small abdominal incision. The old liver is replaced with the new one, and the incision is closed.

In pediatric liver transplant, a small piece of the donor's liver is sufficient. The new liver grows quickly, becoming a functional organ. This procedure is safe for donors, as only a small liver piece is needed for children.

Post-surgery, patients spend a few days in the intensive care unit and then move to general pediatrics under doctor observation. Nutrients are administered intravenously initially, and babies return to normal feeding shortly. The scar heals rapidly, and doctors prescribe pain relief and infection prevention medication for a brief period.

How will the child's life be affected after the transplant?

After a liver transplant, the patient quickly gets back to normal life. Weekly outpatient check-ups happen for the first month, becoming more frequent over time. Stitches are taken out after three weeks. School-going kids can resume their studies in about two months.

Pediatric liver transplant abroad

It makes sense to consider pediatric liver transplantation abroad. Opting for this option helps in cost reduction, accessing unavailable local medical services, and receiving top-notch care from skilled doctors. 

In situations where parents can't find a donor in their own country for their child's liver transplant, they choose countries like Turkey, renowned for the highest success rates, saving money and accessing excellent medical care.

Best country for pediatric liver transplant

Turkey stands out as the top destination for pediatric liver transplantation. In this country, the procedure is routine, carried out in leading clinics with high success rates and quality medical services.

Turkey's expert pediatric liver transplant surgeons give a crucial edge. In top-notch JCI-accredited clinics, they achieve almost no complications or deaths in the surgery.

A unique aspect is Turkey's capability to perform liver transplants on children weighing under 3 kilograms. Unlike many countries, Turkey's experienced surgeons accomplish this with an impressively low complication and death rate.

If you want a pediatric liver transplant in Turkey, you must locate a donor, who can be a relative up to the fourth degree.
