The frequency at which steatotic deceased donor liver grafts are encountered will likely continue to increase. Utilization of liver grafts with moderate-to-severe steatosis for liver transplantation (...

Oxygenated UW solution decreases ATP decay and improves survival after transplantation of DCD liver grafts.

DCD liver grafts are known to be predisposed to primary nonfunction and ischemic cholangiopathy. Many DCD grafts are discarded because of older donor age or long warm ischemia times. Thus, it is criti...

Adipocytokines in Steatotic Liver Surgery/Transplantation.

Because of the shortage of liver grafts available for transplantation, the restrictions on graft quality have been relaxed, and marginal grafts, such as steatotic livers, are now accepted. However, th...
