Liver Transplant Liver Transplant Centre

About Liver Transplant Centre


The first successful liver transplant was performed at Queen Mary Hospital (QMH) in 1991. The first paediatric live donor liver transplantation was succeeded in 1993. Then we pioneered its application to adult patients using a left lobe graft in 1994 and a right lobe graft in 1996 respectively under high urgency situation. Live donor liver transplantation is a high risk operation but it provides life-saving options for desperately ill patients in the face of severe scarcity of deceased donor liver grafts. In July, 2003, the Division of Liver transplantation of QMH officially became the designated Liver Transplant Centre in Hong Kong. The Liver Transplant Centre was established in October, 2011.

By the end of 2018, a total of 1407 liver transplants have been performed for 150 paediatric and 1257 adult recipients. The overall 1-year, 3-year and 5-year survival rates were 93.0%, 88.1% and 85.7% respectively. For live donor liver transplant, the rates were 93.9%, 89.4% and 86.8% respectively. For deceased donor liver transplant, they were 91.8%, 86.5% and 84.4% respectively.

肝臟移植中心

關於肝臟移植中心


一九九一年香港瑪麗醫院肝臟移植組成功完成首例肝臟移植手術。 一九九三年更成功完成了首例的兒童活體肝臟移植手術。 其後,肝臟移植組更發展此革新的手術並分別於一九九四年將左葉活體肝及一九九六年將右葉活體肝臟移植手術成功拓展至成年病人。
活體肝臟移植手術是一項高風險的手術。在嚴重缺乏屍肝供應的情況下,此手術能有效治療病情危重的肝衰竭病人。 在二零零三年七月,瑪麗醫院肝臟移植組更成為香港官方指定唯一的移植中心。 二零一一年十月,瑪麗醫院肝臟移植中心正式成立。
截至二零一八年十二月,瑪麗醫院肝臟移植組總共完成了1407宗肝臟移植。 當中150宗是兒童、1257宗是成人。總括一年、三年、和五年病人的存活率分別是93.0%,88.1% 和85.7%。 活體肝臟移植存活率分別是93.9%,89.4%和86.8%。 而屍體肝臟移植則分別是91.8%,86.5%和84.4%。
