Abstract

Clinical liver transplantation has been performed for more than 25 years. In the 1980s the survival has markedly improved as a result of better patient selection, improved operative techniques, and better understanding of rejection and immunosuppression. This review examines the improvements in liver transplantation that have led to one-year patient survival rates of better than 80%.
