Liver Transplant Volumes and Outcomes
Parents of potential organ transplant patients often ask about the number of liver transplants done at CHOP and our transplant survival rates. We refer to these statistics as volumes and outcomes.
See the number of transplants done here in the last five years:
- 2019 - 19 transplants
- 2018 - 16 transplants
- 2017 - 18 transplants
- 2016 - 9 transplants
- 2015 - 15 transplants
A key concept to understand is graft survival vs. patient survival. Graft survival can sometimes be different from patient survival. For example, a patient’s organ might stop functioning, but the patient survives and has another transplant.
