This session will present perspectives from three large US medical centers performing liver transplantation (Vanderbilt University Medical Center; University of Wisconsin Hospital, Mayo Clinic Florida) and compare and contrast them with respect to the following parameters: (1) blood product usage and management; (2) applications of associated laboratory testing; (3) use of peri-operative therapies. We will also report results of the Blood Utilization in Liver Transplantation (B.U.I.L.T) Survey conducted between liver transplantation centers to understand practice variations.
