In brief: 85%

Survival at one yer can be up to 85% or even more depending on the cause necessitating transplant and the quality of the organ receiver. Cause of death after the first year commonly nclude medical complications or disease recurrence.

In brief: Variable

It will depend on the reason for transplant, where it was done, the patient's overall health before transplant and the health of the donor's liver. Alcoholic liver patients do very well.
Patients with chronic hepatitis c that were successfully treated before transplant will do well. One year survival overall is 85% from the latest national data.
