Learn all about organ transplants and how can it help to save lives
Organ transplant is a highly specialised and complicated medical procedure that involves the replacement of the diseased or non-functional organ of a patient with a healthy organ taken from a suitable donor. The procedure is recommended to patients suffering from end-stage organ failure, who are not responding to medicine or any other treatment. Organ transplant is one of the greatest advancement in modern medicine that has helped to save countless lives over the years.
Organ transplants are broadly classified into two types - Living donor organ transplant and deceased donor organ transplant. In the case of the former, the organ is taken from a living donor. This is not possible for all kinds of transplants and is suitable only when the recipient needs one kidney, a lobe of the liver or a portion of pancreas. In the case of a deceased donor transplant, the organ is taken from a donor who has been declared brain dead.
Yes, there is a certain age limit for every type of organ transplant, and this varies based upon whether it is a living donor organ transplant or deceased donor organ transplant. In the case of the former, the patient should be above 18 years of age. A deceased donor can generally donate up to 60 to 80 years of age.
In the majority of cases, immunosuppressants are to be taken lifelong, so as to negate the risks of organ rejection. Your doctor can decide the same post thorough assessment and evaluation of your overall health.
