When a patient does not have any family member, loved one or another individual willing and able to donate a liver, the only choice is a transplant from a deceased donor. Deceased donor livers are received from people who have died abruptly, usually due to an accident or a bleed in the brain. These are people who were in moderately good health when they died. Most importantly, these people have shown a willingness to donate their organs so that somebody might have a better life.

He explains what it is, the process and for whom it is recommended.
