BACKGROUND Liver transplantation (LT) from donation after cardiac death (DCD) donors is increasingly being used to address organ shortages. Despite encouraging reports, standard survival metrics have overestimated the effectiveness of DCD livers. We examined the mode, kinetics, and predictors of organ failure and resource utilization to more fully characterize outcomes after DCD LT. METHODS We reviewed the outcomes for 32 DCD and 237 donation after brain death (DBD) LT recipients at our… CONTINUE READING
