Update on Liver Transplantation: Changing Indications and Contraindications
Liver transplantation is a lifesaving procedure for patients with acute liver failure, decompensated cirrhosis, and hepatobiliary malignancies. It provides excellent graft and patient survival. The indications and contraindications for liver transplant have evolved over the last couple of decades with a changing demographic for liver disease. The purpose of this presentation is to provide you with updates in liver transplantation including changes to alcohol-related liver disease listing practices, infecting transplant recipients with donor derived infections, machine perfusion to optimize marginal grafts, bariatric surgery at the time of liver transplant for NASH cirrhosis, and the potential of liver transplantation for treating colorectal liver metastasis.
