Liver transplantation (LT) is the sole treatment modality of most of diffuse liver diseases. Simultaneous-pancreas-kidney (SPK) transplantation is also a life saving operation for IDDM patients. Both procedures are established treatment options in the European Community (EC) and in the US. These procedures are performed in a significantly smaller number in Hungary. Having a larger demand for LT than the supply of cadaver donors alternative solutions are sought to increase the number of transplantable livers. In Hungary partly the shortage of donors and the shortage of recipients are the factors rendering the number of LTs and SPKs low. These factors can be changed by better organisation and good survival data that make the two procedures accepted by the community of physicians.
