Liver transplantation in cirrhosis is considered when the anticipated mortality without transplantation exceeds 50% at 1 year.

3. Alcohol.

4. Marked cardio respiratory dysfunction.

Complications of liver transplantation-

1. Acute rejection occurs in up to 60% of patients, usually within the first 6 weeks after transplantation.

2. Surgical complications include hepatic artery thrombosis.

3. Bacterial infections such as pneumonia and wound infections can occur in the first few weeks after transplantation.

4. Late complications include recurrence of the initial disease in the graft and complications due to the immunosuppressive therapy.
