Abstract

From more than 900 articles in the medical literature, published between August 1, 1991 and July 31, 1992, 46 were selected for review. During the year of review, major international symposiums were held on a new drug, FK506, and intestinal transplantation. In addition, at least one new attempt at a unifying hypothesis regarding graft adaptation was proposed. Other studies included living related donor transplantation, results with transplantation for alcoholics, and the controversy regarding the role of liver transplantation for the treatment of Budd-Chiari syndrome. Concerns regarding the recurrence of both hepatitis and primary hepatic malignancy following liver transplantation were also addressed. Two innovative approaches to the treatment of acute liver failure offer exciting promise for the future. Other subjects include histologic evaluation of renal dysfunction in patients with liver disease, quality of life after transplantation, and the proper distribution of precious donor livers.
