Description

This session will present perspectives from three large US medical centers performing liver transplantation (Vanderbilt University Medical Center; Wisconsin Blood Center, 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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Compare and contrast blood product utilization during orthotopic liver transplantation at three large US liver transplantation centers.
  • Compare and contrast applications of laboratory testing as well as usage of perioperative therapies during liver transplantation at these centers.
  • Report results of the Blood Utilization in Liver Transplantation (B.U.I.L.T) Survey conducted between the largest US liver transplantation centers, aimed at understanding practice variations.
