Abstract
Liver transplantation has become the standard treatment for end stage liver disease. Recent improvements have allowed successful transplantation of patients with primary liver cancer, hepatitis B and C, all forms of cholestatic liver disease, autoimmune hepatitis as well as fulminant liver failure. Selection of the right patients who are most likely to benefit from this life saving procedure is a complex task. In this presentation, I will discuss the indications and contraindications for liver transplantation as well as the evaluation process of patients to determine their liver transplant candidacy. With optimal selection, we can expect 1 year probability of survival of 90% and 5 year survival probability of 80%. This compares to less than 10% of 5 year survival in comparable patients who do not receive liver transplantation.
