Abstract

Persisting donor organ shortage has led to an increased utilization of suboptimal donor livers for transplantation. Transplantation of these extended-criteria donor (ECD) livers, however, is associated with high rates of complications, including early allograft dysfunction (EAD) and primary nonfunction (PNF). As a result, a large number of ECD livers are discarded.
