Alternative transplant procedures for acute liver failure


Price: €10,00

Acute liver failure (ALF) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The outcome is highly unpredictable and recovery depends on several factors. Patients can deteriorate with increasing encephalopathy, coagulopathy and progress to multiorgan failure (MOF). In such patients, liver transplantation (LT) is the only current potential cure. Orthotopic liver transplantation remains the standard procedure for LT in ALF, however, other surgical options have been explored. This review summarises the use of a variety of alternative transplant procures for the treatment of acute liver failure including : Two stage OLT, Auxiliary liver transplant, Living donor liver transplantation (LDLT), and ABO incompatible liver transplant.

The aims of this paper are to present a short overview of the current state of the psychosocial evaluation of living donors based on the existing literature and to discuss our centre’s experience in the psychological evaluation of donors, the lessons we have learned in the past 10 years and an agenda for the future evaluation of donors and research.
