Practical management of liver transplant recipients for hepatitis C

Saab S., Busuttil R. W.

Hepatitis C is one of the leading indications for liver transplantation. Recipients can expect at least a short-term survival equivalent to other indications for liver transplantation.

Higher response rates are expected with utilizing pegylated interferon.
