Abstract

Living donor liver transplantation has become a life-saving alternative for end-stage liver disease patients who have no chance of receiving a deceased donor organ. On the basis of information available to the medical community, mortality risk for the living donor is reviewed and implications of not reporting donor deaths are discussed.
