In brief: Liver transplant

There is no exact model to predict survival rates; however, there is a 58% chance of surviving 15 years.
Failure of the new liver occurs in 10% to 15% of all cases. These percentages are contributed to by many complications such as early graft failure due to preexisting disease of the donated organ. Others include technical flaws during surgery. Hope my answer is of help.

Some of these conditions may even be caused by the medications necessary to prevent rejection. Recurrent disease also can occur, especially in diseases like hcv. I.
