Donor liver shortage is a persistent problem in liver transplantation. A more liberal donor acceptance policy may be a possible solution. However, this might put recipients at risk for initial poor function or even non-function of the graft. Therefore risk factors for initial graft dysfunction should be identified, preferably by using an uniform definition of primary graft dysfunction or non-function. We retrospectively analysed 125 adult liver transplantations in order to identify risk factors… CONTINUE READING
