Chennai (I-Newswire) January 30, 2014 - In its endeavor to create a platform to bring together stalwarts to share their knowledge and experiences on key issues pertaining to health, Global Health City, part of the Global Hospitals Group is organizing the "4th Master Class in Liver Disease Conference" from 31st Jan to 2nd Feb, 2014. The focal area for the conference will be "Peri-Operative Care of the Liver Transplant Recipient" this year.

Liver Transplantation is a rapidly growing specialty in India and the number of transplants done annually has shown a steep increase over the last 3 years even as the number of patients waiting to have a liver transplant is also on the rise though the number of available organs from cadaver donors is quite limited. Split Liver transplantation is a highly specialised surgical technique where a whole liver from the brain dead donor is split into two and transplanted into two patients needing a Liver transplant.

The Director of the Programme, Prof. Mohamed Rela, translated his experience and expertise to benefit 12 Indian patients waiting on the list for liver transplantation at Global Hospitals. The Global Hospitals Liver Transplant team has performed 6 split liver transplantations leading to 12 patients (5 adults & 7 children) who have now bounced back to normal life after transplantation. The Global Hospitals liver transplant unit at Chennai has performed close to 300 Liver transplants of which 80 have been done on children. In addition to the excellent multidisciplinary clinical care that is provided to the patients with Liver disease at Global Hospitals, there has been a mutual interest from the specialists in the team and from International Experts in the field of transplantation to hold discussions and deliberations regarding the situations faced while dealing with patients who are undergoing a liver transplantation procedure.

Speaking on the occasion, Prof. Mohammed Rela, Group Director, Institute of Liver Diseases, HPB Surgery and Transplantation, Global Hospitals Group said, "As a special feature for this year's conference, in a first of its kind initiative in India - "Transplant Surgery Workshop" is being organized where 2 Living Donor Liver transplants (2 donors, 2 recipients, a total of 4 surgeries), will be performed by our Liver transplant Team at Global Hospitals. This will be witnessed by over 300 surgeons and anesthetists from India and from several countries who are participating in the conference.
