The role of donor, preop- erative, intraoperative, and postop- erative factors in predicting patient survival after liver transplantation was evaluated by the Bio Medicus data package on a database contain- ing 162 variables filled with records from 100 consecutive first-liver transplant cases. Donor data did not predict outcome. Recipient preop- erative data (Child status, HCV sta- tus) were predictive using life table and Cox regression methods. Recip- ient intraoperative data (by-pass time, warm ischemia time, delay in arterial revascularization, and packed red blood cell requirements) were predictive of outcome using life table analysis. Recipient post- operative data (rejection, sepsis, primary dysfunction, and hepatic ar- tery thrombosis) were predictive of outcome.
