About the Session

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone, including patients with liver disease, and the pre- and post-transplant population. At this program, experts discuss the effect of the virus on the liver and treatment options, as well as COVID-19’s impact on organ donation and pre-, and post- liver transplant patients in highly affected areas in the United States and Europe.

Learning Objectives:

  • Assess risks of using livers from potentially infected donors and procedures to minimize that risk.
  • Discuss treatment options for infected patients with or without liver transplantation and future therapeutic options on the horizon, including vaccines.
  • Describe experiences with management of infection in liver transplant and immunosuppressed patients and their outcomes around the world.
