Liver transplant refers to a surgical procedure to remove a diseased liver and replace it with a healthy liver from a donor. Most liver transplant operations use livers from deceased donors, however a liver may also come from a living donor. A liver transplant is needed when the liver fails to function adequately. A liver failure can be sudden (acute liver failure) as a result of viral hepatitis, drug-induced injury or infection or it can occur slowly over months and years (chronic liver failure).
