Abstract

Liver transplantation is the standard of care for children with life-threatening liver disease. Survival rates posttransplantation are rising with current 1-year and 5-year rates being greater than 90% and 85%, respectively. Numerous factors contribute to posttransplant outcomes of graft and patient survival, including improved surgical techniques, immunosuppressive regimens, and posttransplant management. The present review aims to discuss predictors of long-term outcomes of pediatric transplant recipients and identify potential risk factors.
