Fatty liver a drag on organ transplant
from The Hindu
The increasing rates of fatty liver disease — an excess build-up of fat around the liver, which could eventually progress to inflammation and end-stage liver disease — is a global phenomenon, which has been in evidence in Kerala too in recent years. At a time when deceased donor organ transplantation has caught on in the State in a major way, the rising prevalence of fatty liver disease could have a significant impact on the number of viable donor livers available for transplant, surgeons fear.
