While adverse effects of prolonged recipient warm ischemia time (rWIT) in liver transplantation (LT) have been well investigated, few studies have focused on possible positive prognostic effects of short rWIT. We aim to investigate if shortening rWIT can further improve outcomes in donation after brain-death liver transplant (DBD-LT). Primary DBD-LT between 2000 and 2019 were retrospectively reviewed. Patients were divided according to rWIT (≤30, 31-40, 41-50, and >50 min). The requirement of in...

The success of direct-acting antiviral (DAA) therapy has led to near-universal cure for patients chronically infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV) and improved post-liver transplant (LT) outcomes. We investigated the trends and outcomes of retransplantation in HCV and non-HCV patients before and after the introduction of DAA. Adult patients who underwent re-LT were identified in the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network/United Network for Organ Sharing database. Multiorgan transplants an...
