Donor hypernatremia influences outcomes following pediatric liver transplantation

Published inEuropean journal of pediatric surgery, vol. 23, no. 1, p. 8-13
Publication date2013

With the rising demand for liver transplantations (LTs), and the shortage of organs, extended criteria including donor hypernatremia have been adopted to increase the donor pool. Currently, there is conflicting evidence on the effect of donor hypernatremia on outcomes following LT. Our aim was to investigate differences in outcome in patients receiving grafts from hypernatremic donors compared with patients receiving grafts from normonatremic donors in the pediatric population.
