Purpose of review Review the current status of liver transplantation for patients with alcohol use disorder (AUD). Recent findings Alcohol-related liver disease (ALD) will increase as a source of patients requiring liver transplantation. Attitudes to use of liver transplantation as rescue therapy for patients with severe alcohol-related hepatitis are changing. The long-term health of ALD liver transplantation recipients requires continued assistance to patients with AUD. Summary Liver transplantation of patients with ALD increased during the last decade and we predict that this trend will continue because of the de...

CONCLUSIONS: In recent years, improvements in surgical techniques and immunosuppressive therapies have helped prolong survival of patients who undergo liver transplant. However, this also has led to a rise in the incidence of long-term complications such as de novo malignancy. These patients are more likely to develop de novo malignancy than the general population, for which chronic immunosuppression is identified as a major risk factor. Early diagnosis and treatment of de novo malignancies can help obtain better prognosis and higher survival rates in these patients. PMID: 29237362 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Cancer remains one of the most serious long‐term complications after liver transplantation (LT). Data for all adult LT patients between 1982 and 2013 were extracted from the Nordic Liver Transplant Registry. Through linkage with respective national cancer‐registry data, we calculated standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) based on country, sex, calendar time, and age‐specific incidence rates. Altogether 461 cancers were observed in 424 individuals of the 4246 LT patients during a mean 6.6‐year follow‐up. The overall SIR was 2.22 (95% confidence interval [CI], 2.02‐2.43). SIRs were especially increased for colorec...
