Abstract

Pediatric liver transplantation is a state-of-the-art treatment for children with end-stage liver disease. Over the past few decades, the advent of new surgical techniques using split liver grafts and living donors has drastically increased the organ availability for pediatric patients, while advances in immunosuppression have improved overall outcomes. The pediatrician is a key player in the multidisciplinary team that cares for these children starting with the timely referral of children who require liver transplantation to the active participation in optimizing the child’s overall health before and after transplantation.
