|ILTS-TTS Living Donor Summit|
This will be the inaugural Living Donor Summit jointly organised by the National University Center for Organ Transplantation (NUCOT), in partnership with the International Liver Transplant Society (ILTS) and The Transplantation Society (TTS) in Singapore. This Summit aims to provide a platform for liver transplant specialists coming together to discuss key issues revolving in the living donor liver transplantation.
Living donor liver transplantation is actively performed in the East due to the shortage in organ donation in Asian countries. Though the technical abilities have improved and donor outcomes are satisfactory, the issues of donor safety, the need for monitoring and long term follow up of living donors as well as the ethical considerations of performing living donor liver transplant remains to be for in depth discussion. Additionally, the development of minimally invasive techniques in living liver donor organ harvesting is also an area that is observed closely by the transplant community worldwide.
Join us at The Liver Transplant Symposium 2018 to gain insights in the living donor liver transplantation.
