Abstract

There has been a large gap between the number of patients awaiting liver transplants and those receiving them. In the East, living-donor liver transplant has become the major source of grafts, whereas in the West, deceased-donor grafts have been the major source for liver transplants. Some newly developed or developing donor types are discussed.
