The Effect and Safety of Prostaglandin Administration in Pediatric Liver Transplantation

Published inTransplantation Direct, vol. 3, no. 6, e163
Publication date2017
Abstract

Prostaglandins are often administered after liver transplantation (LT) to diminish ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI), to favor liver recovery and to prevent vascular thrombosis. Possible beneficial effects in adult liver recipients are controversial, but the single existing pediatric small case series shows no significant impact of prostaglandin administration after LT. The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of the prostaglandin dinoprostone in pediatric liver recipients.
