Results: Demographics and Clinical Characteristics in Patient after Transplantation    Table 1 shows the comparison of baseline demographics and clinical characteristics between the two patient groups. In this study, 4 patients had two transplantations, comprising an initial transplantation with [...]

Conclusion: we showed that the in patients requiring CT within the first 3 months after liver transplantation, findings of LPD and small diameter of portal veins predicted one-year graft failure. The findings of post-operative contrast-enhanced CT may point to therapeutic strategies to improve graft outcome in [...]
