Details
Alcoholic hepatitis has high short-term mortality with limited medical therapeutic options. Liver transplantation remains controversial for this indication given inability of these patients to meet six months of sobriety. Despite emerging data on early liver transplant as salvage therapy for severe alcoholic hepatitis, barriers remain on the acceptance of this option in the routine clinical care of these patients.
