  • 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… CONTINUE READING
