Özet

Introduction: Liver transplantation is currently the only treatment option in acute hepatic failure and end-stage liver disease. In spite of their complications, ABO-incompatible liver transplantations are performed due to the shortage of suitable donors and the urgent need for organs. Despite developments in surgical techniques and improvements in antimicrobial prophylaxis strategies, infection is still an important complication and continues to be a major cause of death. In this study, ABO-compatible and ABO-incompatible liver transplant recipients were compared retrospectively in terms of infections and survival.
