Abstract

Since the first clinical liver transplantation in 1963, several improvements in different fields have made this procedure a therapeutic choice for severe hepatic diseases without an alternative treatment. The new perfusion solutions, veno-venous bypass, immunosuppressive treatment, surgical technique, and new legislation represent milestones in progress. Organ shortage is still the major problem. New surgical techniques and xenotransplantation could provide a solution. Despite serious organizational problems, the Liver Transplantation Unit of IRCCS Ospedale Maggiore di Milano has performed the largest number of liver transplantations in adults and children in Italy, with similar results to those reported by foreign units.
