Fantastic Resource On Liver Disease And Liver Transplantation

February 12-12-12 project focus is on a rare liver disease known as Budd-Chiari Syndrome. According to The Merck Manual:

“Budd-Chiari syndrome is caused by blood clots that completely or partially block the large veins that carry blood from the liver (hepatic veins) into the inferior vena cave.”

February’s featured project member, Kim from Hope Whispers, is living with Budd-Chiari Syndrome. Kim has been placed on the transplant list and is awaiting a liver donation.

My educational journey has led me to a fantastic book on liver transplantation. 100 Q&A About Liver Transplantation: A Lahey Clinic Guide (100 Questions & Answers about).

100 Q&A About Liver Transplantation: A Lahey Clinic Guide (100 Questions & Answers about)

 

This book is a wonderful resource. Kim’s condition and transplant journey left me with several questions that the book was able to answer.

If you are interested in learning more about the liver, transplant lists, medication side-effects, and more, I highly recommend this book.

Much love,
Marissa
