Abstract

1. Forty percent of transplant centers expect the primary care physician to be the primary physician; 40% have both a primary care physician and a hepatologist manage the patient. 2. Transplant centers expect primary care physicians to provide general preventive medicine, physical examinations, vaccinations, and, rarely, management of hypertension, renal dysfunction, and diabetes. 3. A high percentage of primary care physicians feel comfortable caring and managing the overall health care of a long-term liver transplant patient. 4. Primary care physicians feel at most ease managing preventive care, annual physical examinations, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia, bone disease, and vaccinations. 5. Primary care physicians should be aware of the common medical conditions of the liver transplant patient of hypertension, diabetes, obesity, hyperlipidemia, and recurrent disease. 6. Common medical conditions for both the transplant centers and primary care physicians are hypertension, dyslipidemia, diabetes mellitus, malignancy, bone disease, pregnancy, vaccination, infectious prophylaxis, and headaches.
