Early liver transplantation for acute alcoholic hepatitis: we can't say no

Résumé

In patients with severe alcoholic hepatitis who are not responding to medical therapy, it is detrimental to postpone the decision to list a patient as there are no therapeutic alternatives. Early transplantation of patients with severe alcoholic hepatitis, using a restrictive selection process, has increasingly been used in the last decade with acceptable relapse rates. Indeed, early transplantation has gained the support of a growing number of experts from different countries, as shown by the European, American and Latin American recommendations. However, there is still great heterogeneity in its application between countries and even between centres within the same country.
