80% of liver transplants in India involve live donors

Unlike in western countries where cadaver donor transplantation is predominant, in India there has been a rise of living liver donors.

Dr Arvinder Soin, chairman and chief surgeon, Medanta Institute of Liver Transplantation, who was one of the first doctors to conduct a liver transplantation in India, said that now over 80% of the involve live donors.

"The success rate of transplants with living donors is higher than with brain-dead donors. At Medanta, we perform around 30 liver transplants a month, with our living donor success rate at 97% among adults and 98% in children," said Soin, who has undertaken 4,000 liver transplants in 25 years.
