About This Topic
Indications for liver transplantation in adult and pediatric populations are increasing with improving outcomes. Due to increased awareness, improving diagnostic modalities and screening protocols hepatocellular carcinomas are identified early on in patients with chronic liver disease and increasing number of patients are listed and transplanted. Patients with hepatobalstoma, cholangiocarcioma and other malignancies in the setting of metabolic liver disease are more frequently transplanted then previously and the allocation system continues to evolve.
In this special issue on liver tumors and liver transplantation, submissions are invited related to this topic. Original research, quality and quantitative systematic analysis, review article, case reports pertaining to all liver tumors benign or malignant, in the adult or pediatric populations are welcome for submission. Topics involving allocation, waiting list management, pre-transplant down staging, tumor control therapies, surgical technique, molecular biology and pathology, outcomes and post-transplantation management are all eligible.
