Until the present time, the first experimental liver transplant which led to the development of human liver transplantation is attributed to C. Stuart Welch who performed a heterotopic transplant in the canine species in 1955. In 1956, Jack Cannon is credited with the first animal orthotopic liver transplant although the species was not disclosed. This report is intended to set the historical record straight by acknowledging that Vittorio Staudacher in 1952 was the first to perform a liver transplant in a large animal model. © Copyright 2012 The American Society of Transplantation and the American Society of Transplant Surgeons.
