ABSTRACT: Liver transplantation for the treatment of patients with advanced liver disease is organized according to a waiting list taking into account different criteria. The agreed distribution model in Andalusia assumes that sometimes an organ is extracted in a different province to that where the implantation is to be performed (shipping), which, therefore, increases the graft ischemic time. The aim of the present study was to determine whether transportation of the organ and being harvested by a team other than the implantation team have a negative effect on final patient survival.Transplantation Proceedings 12/2013; 45(10):3566-8.
