Abstract

OLT is indicated as a procedure for patients with end-stage liver disease to restore not only liver function, but also a good QOL. Few data assessing correlation between medical complications and QOL after OLT are available. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to evaluate the effect of OLT on QOL in adult liver transplant recipients.
