In brief: 70-80%
The graft and patient survival rates are 70-80% at 3 years.
I would look at the outcomes for the center you're working with for the most current statistics.

In brief: It depends
Survival rates after liver transplantation depend on the age, health and gender of the recipient as well as some other factors such as the original cause of liver failure.
Younger healthier females will do better than older, sicker males. In general, big studies show survival rates in the mid-to high 70 percentiles in the first year and close to 50% survival by 5 years.
