Urgent and Highly Urgent Indication for Auxiliary Liver Transplantation

Summary

This report will focus on seven patients treated with auxiliary liver transplantation. In two cases the indication was severe metabolic disorder and in five cases a fulminant hepatic failure. The clinical course was highly complicated in both cases with metabolic disorder (the transplant was lost, one patient died), but satisfactory in the patients suffering from fulminant hepatic disease: three of five are off immunosuppression, one is under therapy and one patient died of sepsis in the early phase.
