Transplant innovations give more patients second chances

Since Emre’s arrival, Yale has addressed the national shortage of donated organs with live-donor liver transplants. The ancient Greeks were on to something with the myth of Prometheus, sentenced to have his liver eaten by an eagle for giving human beings the secret of fire. Each day the organ grew back so that the fire-stealing Titan endured angry Zeus’ punishment anew. As it happens, the human liver does regenerate—a living donor can offer a section of his or her liver for transplantation.

The Yale center is developing programs to safeguard the health of these donors and improve their overall experience. Donors come in healthy and pain-free but frequently experience wound and back pain after the surgery, explained Emre. They need to be counseled about what to expect and given as much pain relief as possible. An education center provides articles about the procedure and videos of the surgery. After the part of liver is harvested, the donor will spend two days in intensive care with a dedicated nurse. Donors are then given a private room after discharge from the ICU. Throughout the process a donor advocacy team—a social worker, a nurse, and a physician—will participate in care with the surgical team. Each patient will be visited in the hospital by a psychologist, and donors are also offered such alternative therapies as Reiki, reflexology, massage, and acupuncture. The center is studying the impact of these interventions on the donors’ quality of life.
“We see patients as not only a body, a liver, or a kidney. We see them as a soul as well,” said Emre.
