Abstract: Organ shortage continues to be a major challenge in transplantation. Recent experience with controlled non-heart-beating or donation after cardiac death (DCD) are encouraging. However, long-term outcomes of DCD liver allografts are limited. In this study, we present outcomes of 19 DCD liver allografts with follow-up >4.5 years. During 1998–2001, 19 (4.1%) liver transplants (LT) with DCD allografts were performed at our center. Conventional heart-beating donors included 234 standard criteria donors (SCD) and 214 extended criteria donors (ECD). We found that DCD allografts had equivalent rates of primary non-function and biliary complications as compared with SCD and ECD. The overall one-, two-, and five-yr DCD graft and patient survival was 73.7%, 68.4%, and 63.2%, and 89.5%, 89.5%, and 89.5%, respectively. DCD graft survival was similar to graft survival of SCD and ECD in non hepatitis C virus (HCV) recipients (p > 0.370). In contrast, DCD graft survival was significantly reduced in HCV recipients (p = 0.007). In conclusion, DCD liver allografts are durable and have acceptable long-term outcomes. Further research is required to assess the impact of HCV on DCD allograft survival.
