The article evaluates survival and the incidence of main post-transplant complications in orthotopic liver transplant recipients older than 60 years. From 1988 to October 2003, 767 adult liver transplants were performed at the Royal Free Hospital in London, England. Patients were divided in two groups according to age and compared. Older patients were more frequently transplant for hepatitis C and hepatocellular carcinoma. Following a transplantation, older patients had a significantly lower survival at 1 and 3 years.
