Abstract

We described the characteristics of livers already labeled as marginal, nonstandard, or selected with extended criteria: donors of elderly age, steatosis, hemodynamic instability, long cold ischemia time, high serum Na, HbcAb-positive status, HCVAb-positive status. Recipients characteristics (gender, UNOS status, MELD score, indication for transplantation) and their best possible match to nonstandard donors were evaluated with a report of the recent guidelines and the specific algorithms to optimize recipient identification.
