Procalcitonin for infections in the first week after pediatric liver transplantation

Published inBMC Infectious Diseases, vol. 17, no. 1, 149
Publication date2017

Procalcitonin (PCT) has become a commonly used serum inflammatory marker. Our aim was to describe the kinetics and usefulness of serial post-operative PCT measurements to detect bacterial infection in a cohort of children immediately after pediatric liver transplantation (pLT).
