Treatments for Acute Liver Failure in Children

How is liver failure treated?

It depends on whether the liver disease is diagnosed and treated before your child's liver fails.

  • Treatment at an early stage of liver disease can be quite successful.
  • Late-stage liver disease, resulting in liver failure, requires a liver transplantation.
  • A liver transplant is an operation performed to replace a diseased liver with a healthy one from another person.
