Long-Term Management of the Liver Transplant Patient

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The long-term survival of patients post liver transplantation includes management of key medical problems to reduce morbidity and mortality. Preventive care with vaccination for hepatitis A and B, pneumococcal infections, and yearly influenza is mandatory. Metabolic syndrome (obesity, hyperlipidemia, diabetes mellitus) is rising and the associated cardiovascular risk is a main concern. A yearly evaluation of weight with counseling, use of statins, and a tight control of blood sugars should be undertaken to improve these cardiovascular risks. Bone disease is common and improves with proper diet and medications. Renal dysfunction remains a major problem post liver transplant with up to 20% incidence within 10 years. Careful evaluation of medical problems and immunosuppression may help. Lastly, diligent screening and surveillance is required to diagnosis de novo malignancy post liver transplantation.
