ABO-Incompatible Liver Transplantation: Perioperative Management
Just like blood transfusion, organ transplantation has to be blood group matched.
In liver transplantation, blood groups A and B could donate liver to similar blood groups. Blood group O are universal donors (can donate organ to A, B, AB, and O) and blood group AB are universal recipients (can receive organs from A, B, AB, and O) (Table 17.1).
Rhesus compatibility and HLA matching are not required in liver transplantation.
