Abstract

Background. The number of suitable donors for organ transplantation is limited in many countries. This limitation can be overcome with the use of organs removed from marginal donors (expanded-criteria donors [ECDs]). We examined the long-term results of 187 patients who underwent marginal cadaveric liver transplantation in our institution.
