Predictors of patient and graft survival following pediatric liver transplantation: Long‐term analysis of more than 300 cases from single center
Pediatric Transplantation Sep 24, 2021
Alnagar A, Daradka K, Kyrana E, et al. - Via analyzing their long term experience in pediatric liver transplant (PLT) activity, researchers herein described the pre transplant factors that can aid in predicting post transplant patient and graft survival.
From 2000 to 2019, 276 patients received 320 PLTs.
Hepatic artery thrombosis was the most common cause of graft loss (n = 13, 29.6%).
Sepsis was the most common cause of mortality (n = 11, 29.7%).
There appeared a significant impact of the learning curve and pre transplant invasive ventilation on patient survival.
Researchers identified no independent factor predicting graft survival.
