Abstract

Liver transplant teams are often faced with the challenges of managing viral recurrence after liver transplantation. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) remains the most challenging viral disease in the transplant community. Strategies to prevent and delay viral recurrence have slowly developed over the past 5 years. Hepatitis B virus (HBV), previously a contra-indication for liver transplantation due to recurrence and cholestasis with allograft failure, is now one of the more favorable indications for liver transplantation as a result of current therapeutic options. This review investigates the up-to-date information on treatment-outcomes for HCV and HBV in the period following liver transplant.
