Maple Syrup Urine Disease and Domino Liver Transplantation: When and How?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Liver transplantation (LT) for various metabolic diseases, which in most cases have a structurally normal liver, has increased the interest in the use of explanted organs for domino LT. The latter initially explored in familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP), and it is an effective strategy to increase liver grafts and reduce wait-list mortality and dropout, in particular for LT candidates with low priority ().
