Abstract
Liver transplantation (LT) was developed in 1963. Until 1968 about 10 were performed worldwide with one meaningful survival of 400 days. More LTs were done experimentally. In 1983 it was considered as a treatment option for end stage liver disease. Success of LT doubled after introduction of cyclosporine in early 1980s. With increasing success rate the indications and demand of liver transplant increased exponentially. According to WHO data, until 2010, about 183,193 LTs were performed worldwide. In eastern and middle eastern countries, where brain death criteria were not very well accepted until recently, most LTs were from living donors. In the West majority are from deceased donors
