Basically they transplanted a part of the liver from a living donor and after 17 days it was regenerated and they took out the sick liver!!

Thanks for sharing this!

I think similar things have been tried before with transplanting. Problem was that people had recurrence in the new liver as well. See this: https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cjgh/2018/9531925/

Not sure I understand what’s new here; is it a partial transplant?
