Living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT) is a life-saving procedure for patients on the transplant waiting list. The purpose of this webinar is to discuss the complex conditions that may lead to the need for a liver transplant. The American Liver Foundation has teamed up with UPMC- pioneers and leading experts in organ transplantation- to provide an overview of the procedure, including risks and benefits for donor and recipient.

If you have PBC, the idea that someday you might need a liver transplant isn’t easy to think about. I know I didn’t want to consider it, when I was diagnosed in 1992.
But I wish I’d been more prepared for the challenges that arose in 2005, when I learned that I needed a new liver. I hope that sharing my story, today, will help you if and when a transplant becomes necessary.
