[en] The orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) program of the University of Liege was initiated in 1986. Between 1986 and December 1998, 150 adult OLT have been performed in our institution, including 18 liver retransplantations, 1 combined heart and liver transplantation and 3 combined liver and kidney transplantations. The aim of this study was to report the last 3 years of our experience. From January 1996 to November 1998, we performed 50 OLT on 49 patients. Three were retransplantations and two were combined liver and kidney transplantations. Fourty-three patients were transplanted for chronic liver disease and 6 for acute or subacute hepatopathy. Mean waiting time on the list was 4 weeks. Immunosuppression was based on triple therapy (cyclosporin A/tacrolimus, steroids, azathioprine), with steroid and azathioprine withdrawal in most of the patients after 3 months. In the chronic liver disease group, operative (< 30 days) survival was 95% (peroperative myocardial infarction in 2 patients). In the acute liver disease group, postoperative survival was 66%. No perioperative death occurred in 1997 and 1998. Actuarial one year survival was 87%. In our experience, OLT has become a safe procedure.
