When the condition becomes irreversible and life-threatening, recourse to a liver transplant is necessary.

In fact, in the absence of treatments to cure your child, his liver function will increasingly deteriorate (jaundice, risk of bleeding, ascites, etc.) to the point that the risk of death will exceed the risk of living with the damaged liver.

Your child may die from severe liver disease or complications before a transplantation can be performed, but deaths are rare.

The operation itself will take between 6 and 10 hours. However, your child will usually stay in the operating room between 10 and 14 hours.

You will receive regular updates from the transplant team.

As a general rule, donations from parents or other family members are avoided. However, depending on the severity of your child's illness and the degree of urgency, this option may be considered on an exceptional basis.

It varies depending on your child's illness and its severity.

It could take anywhere from a few days to several months, even one or two years.
