Liver donor risk index formula
Donor risk index calculator Donor Risk Index for Liver Transplantation Calculator Feng et al., Characteristics associated with liver graft failure: the concept of a donor risk index. Donor Risk Index for Living Donors Living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) outcomes are equivalent to deceased donor transplants when performed at experienced centers. Development of a risk score to optimize donor and recipient selection for LDLT was undertaken by Goldberg et al., using data from 2100 LDLTs from 2002 to 2012. The Liver Donor Risk Index allows for greater appreciation of the importance of donor factors, particularly for hepatitis C-positive recipients; as the donor risk index increases, rates of allograft and patient survival among these recipients decrease disproportionately.
