Will a child be a guaranteed a liver match to his father (for living donor purposes)?

In brief: Not necessarily

While liver transplant is sometimes done as a life sustaining procedure with low levels of anti-hla antibodies to the donor, this is a higher risk transplant.
The precise circumstances of the donor and recipient need to be carefully evaluated by the team responsible for the transplant.
