Ischemic Reperfusion Injury After Liver Transplantation: Is There a Place for Conservative Management?

Aiman Obed, Saqr Alsakarneh, Mohammad Abuassi, Abdalla Bashir, Bashar Ali Ahmad, Anwar Jarrad, Thomas Lorf, Mohammad Almeqdadi


Ischemic reperfusion injury (IRI) after liver transplantation is a common cause of early allograft dysfunction with high mortality. The purpose of this case report series is to highlight an unusual clinical course in which complete recovery can occur following the identification of severe hepatic IRI post-transplantation and the implications of this finding on management strategies in patients with IRI post-transplant. Here, we include three cases of severe IRI following liver transplantation that are putatively resolved without retransplantation or definitive therapeutic intervention. All patients recovered until their final follow-up visits to our institution and developed no significant complications from their injury throughout the course of patient care by our institution after discharge from the hospital.
