Pediatric LT recipients show increased odds for survival post-transplant
April 28, 2016

BARCELONA — Children who underwent liver transplantation lived for 20 years or more post-transplant, according to data presented at the International Liver Congress.

“These results are unique in terms of time of follow-up and homogeneity of the cohort studied. They provide data to inform families and could be used in the future for comparison,” Emmanuel Gonzales, MD, PhD, professor of pediatrics at Université Paris Sud working in the pediatric liver unit of Bicêtre Hospital, INSERM, AP-HP, France, and Josefina Martinelli, of the pediatric liver unit, AP-HP, told Healio.com/Hepatology. “The overall results are encouraging knowing that these diseases were constantly lethal before the era of pediatric liver transplantation.”
