Anaesthesia for paediatric liver transplantation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The first paediatric liver transplant was performed in 1963 by Thomas E. Starzl in Denver, Colorado, on a baby with biliary atresia [1]. With the development of cyclosporine and other immunosuppressive agents [2] since that time, as well as the development of new surgical techniques, there are now more than 140 transplant centres in the United States alone. Several hundred transplants are now performed each year both in the United States and abroad, all with significantly reduced morbidity and mortality [3].
