Abstract

Recent discussions about the distribution of cadaveric liver allografts for transplantation have raised many important issues. Over the past 2 years, a deliberative process including discussions, modeling, a request for information, a public forum, and a concept document has led to a greater focus on a possible path for reducing wait-list mortality. Here we describe that process, our interpretation of the feedback and responses, and possible recommendations.
