The University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf has an extensive and active liver transplant program, with more than 1,700 liver transplantations performed between 1990 and 2009 (approximately 1,100 in adults and 600 in children).
Lebertransplantationen in Hamburg 1994-2009:
Patients who are residents of countries outside the Eurotransplant area (Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Austria, Luxembourg, Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary) will not receive a cadaveric liver transplant via Eurotransplant and must bring a matching living donor who will donate part of his liver. In adult recipients this is usually the right liver lobe, while for pediatric recipients liver segments II and III (see illustration) are usually sufficient. Since the liver has the ability to regenerate quickly, the donated part of the liver will grow back within a few weeks.
