  • Background Cardiovascular disease and renal impairment are common in cirrhotic transplant candidates. We aimed to investigate potential association between pretransplant renal function impairment and cardiac events after liver transplantation. Methods Adult cirrhotic patients undergoing first-time liver transplantation between 1999 and 2007 in a single institution with available glomerular filtration rate (GFR), assessed by 51Cr-EDTA clearance at pre-transplant evaluation, were retrospectively… CONTINUE READING
