Supportive therapy for liver transplantation
Transplantation of the liver in man has been a practical possibility for over fifteen years. Problems of tissue matching and rejection are significantly less than those found in renal transplantation . The principal stumbling block is the technical complexity of the operation. Not only is the surgical procedure difficult and time consuming , but the perioperative management of the patients by the anaesthetic team requires considerable resources of manpower, equipment and laboratory facilities.
