Abstract

Key Points 1. Liver grafts from hepatitis C virus (HCV)-infected deceased donors can be used safely in HCV-infected recipients. 2. Histological assessment of the graft before orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) is advised. 3. Recipients of these grafts should give consent accordingly. 4. The course of HCV disease after OLT parallels that in patients who received noninfected organs.
