Abstract

Liver transplantation represents a major advancement in treating selected patients with advanced liver disease. The keys to successful outcome include: 1) early evaluation and listing for transplantation before the patient develops severe complications of cirrhosis; 2) control of comorbid conditions; and 3) a cooperative and dynamic interchange between the transplant center and other physicians involved in the care of the patient.
