How long will a transplanted liver last?

answered:

A long time

Cirrhosis_(liver)
Potentially a transplanted liver can last decades, a lifetime. Some diseases, such as hepatitis C, can recur with a vengeance. But I often tell patients that if they make it the 1st yr, their bungee cord may break, their parachute may not open, but they won't die of liver disease.

About 70% of deceased donor liver transplant recipients are alive with functioning grafts at 5 years, and about 50% are alive at 10 years. Cases of 20 year survival with the same have occurred.
