The absolute contraindications for liver transplant are alcohol/substance abuse, malignancy, HIV infection, advanced heart & lung diseases and severe infections. Pre transplant procedures
As part of the pre transplant work up you will have to get certain tests done and will have to consult some doctors to confirm that you are fit for the transplant. Cross matching will be done to ensure your body does not have any antibodies against the new liver. Your transplant will be postponed or cancelled if you develop any infection or disease prior to your transplant. So it is important to eat healthy and stay fit.
