Liver transplantation (LT) is a life-saving and evidence-based intervention for patients with acute liver failure and chronic end-stage liver disease. Significant progress has been made in advancing pre-LT management, transplant techniques, post-LT long-term care, and immunosuppression regimes. However, as rates of DC continue to increase, causes of liver disease and indications for LT continue to be investigated to ensure equity and further improve liver allocation models, waitlist outcomes, and post-LT outcomes for all patient populations.
