Liver transplantation has considerably evolved over the last two decades. With improvements in surgery and patient care, the one-year patient survival rate is now about 84% in Europe. This improvement has occurred in all indications, including hepatocellular carcinoma. The advent of new surgical techniques designed to palliate the graft shortage, such as the use of split liver and living donors, has not negatively affected the survival curve.
