The article studies improvement in cognitive function following liver transplantation. Patients with chronic liver disease frequently experience cognitive dysfunction. The effect of liver transplantation on this dysfunction is uncertain. For this study 58 patients were recruited. There was a significant improvement across all the areas of cognitive function tested. Patients did not return to normal however, and performed significantly worse post-transplant than the control group on all tests other than verbal learning and trail A. Cognitive function and health related quality of life in patients with end stage liver disease improve following liver transplantation, but do not return to normal.
