    Notes: Conclusion Although liver transplantation still cannot be considered as a routine therapy, the initial phase of development has now been reached and results are encouraging. The benefits to the patient from the liver transplant “revolution” are clear, since it represents the only therapeutic option for patients with advanced liver disease. In return, it has brought unexpected problems to the fore. A vast increase in potential candidates is now confronting the transplant teams, bringing the problem of organ shortage and with it the need to clarify selection and timing in order to avoid potential organ wastage in “hopeless” cases. Since more than three-quarters of transplant patients will make a complete medical recovery, the long-term effects of immunosuppression and quality of life become all-important. Our goal now must be effective utilisation of all potential livers and further improvement of results in critical groups of candidates.
