Abstract Liver transplantation is a standardized therapy for end-stage liver disease. With current immunosuppressive protocols and patient care, ten-year patient survival rate has reached 60%. Several medical complications may develop during this period, including renal dysfunction, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia, and metabolic bone disease. The aim of this article is to analyze long-term results of several clinical trials reporting common medical dysfunctions after liver transplantation and to discuss their management.
