Abstract: Mortality on liver transplantation (OLT) waiting lists has increased dramatically. Until recently, non-heart-beating donors (NHBD) were not considered suitable for OLT, because of a higher risk of primary graft nonfunction (PNF) and biliary strictures. However, recent experimental/clinical evidence has indicated that NHBD-OLT is feasible when the period of warm ischemia is short.
