Infection transmission from donor to recipient is a dreadful complication in transplantation. Although bacteremia was previously detected in 5% of donors without negative impact on recipient outcome, the current expansion of graft pool requires consideration of the infectious risk associated with suboptimal donors. This study aims to evaluate the incidence and risk factors of infection in unselected cadaveric liver donors, the occurrence of microorganism transmission to recipient and its… Expand
