Factors related to improvement are established in patients with alcoholic liver cirrhosis on a transplant waiting list

A study led by researchers from the Clínic-IDIBAPS and the CIBEREHD and published in the Journal of Hepatology shows that up to 9% of patients with alcoholic cirrhosis on liver transplant waiting lists improve and can be delisted.  The study establishes the factors associated with this improvement, and the results can help optimise waiting lists and avoid unnecessary transplants.
