It now stands as a standard therapy for many patients with acute and chronic liver disease. The success in this field is due to the advancements and innovations which evolved - in the form of better pre and post transplant care, improved anaesthesia, innovative surgical strategies, early detection of complications and progress in the field of immunosuppression.
