当院間移植患者家族会 ドレミファクラブ

『こどもの肝移植ハンドブック英語版』


In November 2005, the National Center for Child Health and Development (NCCHD) launched a live-donor liver transplantation program. Although the number of patients was initially limited, it grew every year, and the Center is now known to run the largest pediatric liver transplantation program in the world. Over the last 10 years, we have attempted to develop many new therapeutic methods. This has included the establishment of safe methods for liver transplantation in infants and newborns, the establishment of methods for extended hepatectomy and liver transplantation for hepatoblastoma, attempts at novel transplant applications to treat metabolic liver diseases, the establishment of intensive care for fulminant hepatitis, the performance of multiple organ transplants, the establishment of pediatric deceased donor transplants, split liver transplantation, cell transplants, and regenerative medicine, the construction of a national database for pediatric liver transplantations, the establishment of methods to operate donors through small incisions, the introduction of laparoscopic-assisted donor surgeries, and surveys of living donors’ quality of life.

At the NCCHD, we perform transplant surgeries on children from all over Japan and overseas. As a national hospital, we are confronted with many patients who have extremely serious and rare diseases. To ensure that as many children as possible leave the hospital smiling and go on to attend school, build careers, and become fathers, mothers, grandfathers, or grandmothers themselves, the staff of the entire Center works as one to solve the problems of transplant medicine and to perform their jobs humbly.
