BackgroundFew studies have studied the effects of graft quality on non-urgent liver retransplantation (ReLT) outcomes. We aimed to analyze graft characteristics and survival in non-urgent ReLT and the effect of using grafts with extended criteria on survival.MethodsEighty non-urgent ReLT were performed from June 1988 to June 2010. The whole series was divided by identical time periods to study time-related effects. We assessed graft quality with donor risk index (DRI) and Briceño scores and… 
Effects of Donor Age and Cold Ischemia on Liver Transplantation Outcomes According to the Severity of Recipient Status
TLDR
The negative effects of prolonged CIT seem to be limited to patients with moderate MELD receiving organs procured from older donors and to high-MELD recipients, irrespective of donor age.
Extended-criteria donors in liver transplantation Part II: reviewing the impact of extended-criteria donors on the complications and outcomes of liver transplantation
TLDR
Graft survival was excellent up to a DS of 2, however a DS >2 should be avoided in higher-risk recipients, andHypothermic oxygenated machine perfusion can be applied clinically in DCD liver grafts, and Feasibility and safety were confirmed.
Influence of Donor Obesity on Long-Term Liver Transplantation Outcomes.
TLDR
Mortality was significantly associated with the presence of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) in the recipient and with the age of the donor, and a significantly longer pre-extraction ICU stay was observed in obese versus nonobese donors, but no significant between-group difference in the post-transplant complications or survival of the respective recipients.
Influence of Donor Obesity on Long-Term Liver Transplantation Outcomes.
TLDR
A significantly longer pre-extraction ICU stay was observed in obese (BMI ≥30) versus nonobese donors and the risk of death was 2.87-fold higher in patients with HCV versus without HCV.
Recipient Age for Liver Transplantation: Should It Be Limited? A Propensity Score Matching Analysis of a Large European Series.
TLDR
The impact of recipient age on the post-LT survival in 2 well-balanced populations at Vall d'Hebron University Hospital and advanced age alone should not exclude patients from LT.
Retransplantations in the Hungarian liver transplant program.
TLDR
The data suggested that the characteristics and number of early reOLT did not change over time, however, the rate of late reOLTs increased, which can be explained by the increased rate ofLate onset biliary complications in spite of proper interventional radiological treatment.
The donor risk index: A decade of experience

  • 2017
TLDR
The donor risk index (DRI) remains relevant but may benefit from being updated to provide guidance in the use of extended criteria donors by accounting for the impact of geography and unmeasured donor characteristics.
A new formula as a predictive score of post-liver transplantation outcome: postoperative MELD-lactate.
TLDR
The postoperative MELD lactate score proved to be more specific and sensitive than the original MELD and MELD sodium as a predictive model of the outcome of patients submitted to OLT.
Tu1027 A New Formula As a Predictive Score of Post-Liver Transplantation Outcome: Postoperative MELD Lactate
TLDR
The postoperative MELD lactate score proved to be more specific and sensitive than the original MELD and MELD sodium as a predictive model of the outcome of patients submitted to OLT.
Hepatic retransplant: what have we learned?
TLDR
Hepatic retransplant remains the sole option for survival in many patients facing allograft failure after liver transplant, and with improved techniques to match retrans transplant candidates with appropriate donor grafts, it is hoped that the outcomes ofretransplant will continue to improve in future.

Optimization of liver grafts in liver retransplantation: a European single-center experience.
TLDR
All retransplants performed in the authors' hospital were reviewed to determine if there is a high risk group of patients in whom its use would be contraindicated, and candidate selection in elective ReLT is critical to improve the results.
Decision for Retransplantation of the Liver: An Experience- and Cost-Based Analysis
TLDR
The utility of retransplantation in the elective situation is confirmed and should be used with discretion in the emergency setting, and it should be avoided in subgroups of patients with little chance of success.
Long-term survival after retransplantation of the liver.
TLDR
Hematic retransplantation, although life-saving in almost 50% of patients with a failing liver allograft, is costly and uses scarce donor organs inefficiently and should assist in the rational application of retransplplantation.
Donor Factors Predicting Recipient Survival After Liver Retransplantation: The Retransplant Donor Risk Index
TLDR
The ReTxDRI was predictive of overall recipient survival and was a strongly independent predictor of death after retransplantation and can improve recipient and donor matching and help to optimize posttransplant survival in liver retrans transplantation.
Use of Extended Criteria Livers Decreases Wait Time for Liver Transplantation Without Adversely Impacting Posttransplant Survival
TLDR
Liver grafts from ECD can be used to dramatically reduce wait list time with outcomes comparable to those for SD without resorting to living donor liver transplantation.
A proposal for scoring marginal liver grafts
TLDR
The use of marginal liver donors with more than three risk factors must be carefully reviewed or refused because of the cumulative dysfunction of these grafts.

TLDR
A quantitative donor risk index was developed using national data from 1998 to 2002 to assess the risk of donor liver graft failure using seven donor characteristics that independently predicted significantly increased risk of graft failure.
A model to predict survival following liver retransplantation
TLDR
A model that uses five readily accessible “bedside” variables to accurately predict survival in patients undergoing liver retransplantation is developed and validated and underscores the applicability of the model as an adjunct to clinical judgment.
Changing faces of liver retransplantation: It is all about selection

TLDR
Changing trends of retransplantation are examined and the determination of the variables that predict re-OLT outcomes are determined, illustrating a decline in complication rates and that infection remains the most important cause of death following re- OLT.
When shouldn't we retransplant?
  • M. Zimmerman, R. Ghobrial

  • 2005
TLDR
Re‐OLT should not be undertaken with extended and older donors particularly when retransplantation for recurrent disease is considered, and prognostic models that take into account the severity of disease and the effect of the organ to be transplanted should be developed to better predict outcomes after re‐ OLT.
