Summary of "Superior Wait-List Outcomes in Patients with Alcohol-Associated Liver Disease Compared to Other Indications for Liver Transplantation."

Alcohol-associated liver disease (ALD) has become the commonest indication for liver transplantation (LT) in Western countries. For example, recent EASL guidelines indicate that about 40% of patients transplanted in 2016 had ALD as the primary indication for transplantation (including hepatocellular carcinoma). As transplantation for hepatitis C infection will significantly decrease in most countries, this percentage should continue to increase. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
