what is absolute contraindications to liver transplantation?
no more a loser
Contraindications to liver transplantation include:
Extrahepatic malignancy (cancer somewhere other than the liver)
Active untreated extrahepatic sepsis (infection)
Advanced cardiopulmonary disease
Active alcoholism or substance abuse
Anatomic abnormalities precluding transplantation
I'll say one more-uncorrectable coagulopathy(in primary biliary cirrhosis and primary sclerosing cholangitis).
