Post-Reperfusion Liver Biopsy and Its Value in Predicting Mortality and Graft Dysfunction After Liver Transplantation

Abstract: Background: The outcome of the patients after liver transplant is complex and to characterize the risk for complications is not always easy. In this context, the hepatic post-reperfusion biopsy is capable of portraying alterations of prognostic importance. Aim: To compare the results of liver transplantation, correlating the different histologic features of the hepatic post-reperfusion biopsy with graft dysfunction, primary non-function and patient survival in the first year after transplantation. Method: From… Show more

“…In this scenario, the progression of fibrosis and the onset of cirrhosis are important prognostic factors for patients on the liver transplantation waiting list. The majority of complications and mortalities are related to the severity of cirrhosis, and portal hypertension and its associated complications 14 , 21 . The validation of the ability of elasticity quantification to reveal in real life, liver stiffness as an important factor for its widespread application.…”

“…Published papers confirm that biliary complications after hepatic transplantation present a high incidence due to ischemia of the bile ducts [1-7]. After transplantation, its vascularization is exclusively supplied by vessels derived from the hepatic artery itself, due to the sectioning of the collateral vessels of the liver ligaments during liver withdrawal for transplantation [8,18,19].…”

“…The MELD score was described to predict the three-month survival rate of patients submitted to transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt and validated as a measure of probability of mortality in patients candidates for liver transplantation 11 , 24 , 31 . Since then, it has been adopted as a criterion in the allocation of liver for transplantation until the present day.…”
