Our goal was to evaluate the results of the first 100 liver transplants performed in our institution.


We retrospectively analyzed the first 100 liver transplants undertaken in adults from November 2001 to August 2005.


The mean age of the recipients was 50 years (20 to 69) and 73% were men. The mean waiting time was 35 days. The mean age of the donors was 60 years (15 to 87), and 60% were men. One-year patient and graft survival rates were 93% and 90%, respectively. Three-year patient and graft survival rates were 85% and 82%, respectively. The need for retransplantation was 3%. Surgical complications included hepatic artery stenoses, 2%; hepatic artery thromboses, 2%; biliary leaks, 6%; and biliary stenoses, 14%.


These results are no different from the overall results for liver transplantation in Spain during the same period.
