More than thirty patients have now undergone liver transplantation in Denver, some more than once, and survivals of up to two and a half years have been achieved. Through this and other experience it has been learned that graft viability is more critical than histocompatibility matching but that the most important factor in the ultimate outcome is prevention of rejection through vigorous immunosuppressive therapy.
