Living donor LT recipients may have increased surgical site infection risk

September 2, 2015

In a prospective study, researchers found that adult and pediatric recipients of a living donor liver transplant had an increased risk for developing surgical site infections post-transplant.

Researchers in Japan analyzed data of 129 adult and 72 pediatric living donor liver transplant (LDLT) recipients enrolled at Kyoto University Hospital in Japan from two separate time periods. Of the adult patients, 66 were from April 2001 to March 2002, the first period, and 63 were from January 2011 to June 2012, the second period. Of the pediatric patients, 39 were studied in the first period and 33 were studied in the second.
