We had conducted more than 600 cases of liver transplantation since 2001 and 75% were live donor liver transplantation. Our surgical successful rate was 90% and 3-year survival rate reached to 75%. Although the survival rate is not very high, it is because we treated many difficult cases referred from other hospitals. We performed two cases of Domino liver transplant, one case of APOLT (auxiliary partial orthotopic liver transplant), and 4 cases of newborn liver transplantation which were never performed in other hospital in Taiwan. The live donor liver transplant for a 25-day old baby with 3.8 kg and a 4-month old baby with only 3.2 kg were successful treated in our hospital.
Our researches include clinical innovative technique, stem cell transplantation for acute liver failure in swine, tolerance and many others associated with liver transplantation.
We have trained more than 30 medical staffs (surgeons, intensivists and nurses) from foreign countries and from Taiwan.
