Abstract

The cost and impact of early post-transplant complications continue to be high. Diagnosis and management involves a high index of suspicion, rapid diagnostic and therapeutic interventions, and elimination of technical problems. Preoperative assessment of the donor and recipient medical condition and meticulous attention to detail during the technical performance of OLTx are the mainstays in achieving a good outcome.
