Abstract

© 2002 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. The process by which patients with end-stage alcoholic liver disease (ALD) are selected for liver transplantation, in the presence of increasing donor shortages and rising transplantation requirements for most categories of liver disease, remains one of the most controversial areas in medicine today. Other questions such as the relationship between pie-transplant abstinence, alcohol relapse and quality of life after liver transplantation also remain unresolved. This chapter examines the indications and selection criteria for transplantation of patients with end-stage ALD, the issues of quality of life and recidivism post-transplant, and possible future directions for liver transplantation in ALD.
