Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

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

METHODS:

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

RESULTS:

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%.

CONCLUSIONS:

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