Abstract

OLT is an effective therapeutic option for end-stage liver disease and survival rates are encouraging. Disagreement however exists as to whether OLT should be provided to patients with alcoholic cirrhosis. The aim of the study was to evaluate long-term results (recidivism to alcohol consumption, incidence of acute rejection, survival) in patients transplanted for ALD.
