Liver transplantation for severe alcoholic hepatitis where are we now?

Abstract : Although a minority of patients with alcohol-related liver disease (ALD) meet the rigorous criteria for acceptance, liver transplantation (LT) activity for ALD has continued to increase [1]. Timing of LT for ALD differs among transplant programs, although the selection process is frequently based on the 6-month sober period prior to listing [2]. For severe alcoholic hepatitis (SAH) patients not responsive to medical therapy, a strict application of a period of sobriety as a policy for transplant eligibility remains controversial as most patients will have died prior to the end of the 6-month sober period.
