Conclusions: Our study demonstrates trends toward worse health outcomes, decreased adherence, and increased health care utilization following transfer of care. These findings and poor patient survival suggest that the time around transition from pediatric to adult health care models represents a period of increased vulnerability for pediatric LT recipients. Larger, multicenter, prospective studies are needed to identify factors and interventions that affect adolescent and young adult to improve the transition process.
