Interest of an Early Rehabilitation Program in Liver Transplant Surgery

Brief description of study

Monocentric, prospective study to evaluate 10 liver transplanted patients

Detailed Study Description

The improvement of perioperative technics and the prevention of complications with immunosuppression allowed for the development with success of liver transplant. 1322 liver transplants occurred in 2016 in France to 806 in 2000. Centre Hospitalier Universitaire (CHU) of Rennes became a reference with 122 liver transplants in 2016 being the second liver transplant center in France.

Early rehabilitation concept is a multidisciplinary approach (surgical, anesthetic) that aims to reduce the length of hospital stay and peri operative morbidity/mortality. These programs have first been developed in colorectal surgery before extending to complicated surgery like cephalic duodeno-pancreatectomy or hepatectomy. There are poor data in the literature on early rehabilitation program in liver transplant.
