What is organ transplant?The doctors may recommend for organ transplant in case of organ failure.Organ transplant is a procedure, where vital organs like heart, eye, liver, kidney, lungs etc can be taken from a donor to replace the deformed or a dead organ. The transplant increases life expectancy of a person and helps him/her in leading a normal life.
There are organs like kidney and liver which can be donated while a person is alive. Any person can survive on one kidney and partial liver. There have been many cases where family members have successfully donated their kidney and partial liver to the patient.
The process of Organ Transplant
Organ transplant is not an easy decision and also not an easy process, both the donor and the receiver has to undergo multiple tests before the doctor Okays the transplant. The doctors first conduct the surgery on the donor for taking out the organ which has to be donated. The surgery on the receiver is conducted after the doctor has successfully extracted the organ from the donor’s body and has preserved it. The preserved organ then is placed in the body of the receiver.
There can be chances that the body may refuse to accept a foreign organ. In that case, the transplant can be fatal for the receiver.
