The Development of the Liver Transplantation Team in Groningen
The liver transplant team in Groningen was in 1977 in an embryonic state. In 1978 the first patient was sent abroad to receive a new liver and in 1979 the first orthotopic liver transplantation was performed in an adult. More then three years later a child was transplanted a new liver. In 1983 the first patient from abroad came to receive a new liver in Groningen. By now, 31 orthotopic liver transplantations have been performed.
