Should we use liver grafts repeatedly refused by other transplant teams?

In France, liver grafts that have been refused at least 5 times can be "rescued" and allocated to a centre which chooses a recipient from its own waiting list, outside the patient-based allocation framework. We explored whether these "rescued" grafts were associated with worse graft/patient survival, as well as assessing their effect on survival benefit.
