The purpose of this study is to propose a new concept of primary graft dysfunction (PGD) after living donor liver transplantation (LDLT), characterized by delayed functional hyperbilirubinemia (DFH) and a high early graft mortality rate. A total of 210 adult-to-adult LDLT grafts without anatomical, immunological or hepatitis-related issues were included. All of the grafts with early mortality (n = 13) caused by PGD in LDLT had maximum total bilirubin levels >20 mg/dL after postoperative day 7… CONTINUE READING
