Studies in Pediatric Liver Transplantation

Studies in Pediatric Liver Transplantation (SPLIT), is a research effort that was organized in 1995 by a group of physicians and surgeons committed to the success of pediatric liver transplantation.

The group represents a cooperative effort between transplant centers in the U.S. and Canada to prospectively collect and analyze information required to advance the science of pediatric liver transplantation.

All children waiting for transplantation or recovering after transplantation can participate in the multicenter prospective study to collect scientific data on pediatric liver transplantation. The data collected are stored in a national database and provide information about the practices and outcomes of pediatric liver transplantation.

CHOP’s Biesecker Pediatric Liver Center is an active participant in SPLIT research.
