Liver transplantation has been underway for several decades, becoming a curative and life-prolonging treatment for individuals experiencing acute liver failure, end-stage liver disease, and/or hepatocellular carcinoma. Several trends have emerged to better select recipients and identify indicators for successful transplantation in light of the shortage of available organs relative to the number of people awaiting transplantation. In addition, different perfusion approaches have been studied to better understand how to achieve favorable outcomes during and after liver transplantation.
