Introduction:Impact of donor age on HCV recurrence in live donor liver transplant (LDLT) recipients is controversial. We compared HCV progression in recipients receiving a graft from a live donors ≥50 vs < 50 years.
Methods: From 2000-2014, 159 patients with HCV received a LDLT at our institution. Outcomes of patients receiving a graft from donors ≥50 years (LDLT≥50=31) vs <50 years (LDLT<50=128) were compared.
Results: No difference was observed between groups regarding recipient demographics and disease severity. Recipient ICU (LDLT<50:2 vs. LDLT≥50:2 days; p=0.88) and hospital stay (LDLT<50:13 vs. LDLT≥50:16 days; p=0.41) after transplantation was similar. Major complications (Clavien ≥3b) were similar between both groups (LDLT<50:22% vs. LDLT≥50:25%; p=0.63). Rejection episodes did not differ among groups (LDLT<50:25% vs. LDLT≥50:16%; p=0.35). Overall HCV recurrence was similar between both groups (LDLT<50: 56% vs. LDLT≥50: 71%; p=0.15). HCV 1-year recurrence with a METAVIR score ≥2 was also similar (LDLT<50: 10% vs. LDLT≥50: 16%; p=0.35). Although 1-(89%vs.87%), 5-(77%vs.70%) and 10-(71%vs.55%) year graft survival was similar between groups (p=0.096), HCV recurrence was the main reason for graft failure in both groups and significantly higher in the LDLT≥50 group (LDLT<50: 21% vs. LDLT≥50: 62%; p=0.002). Late HCV recurrence only manifested itself after 5 years and did not impact on patient survival at 1-(90%vs.90%), 5-(78%vs.69%) and 10-(71%vs.60%) (p=0.25).
Conclusion: LDLT with older donors (≥50) for HCV patients resulted in an increased late HCV recurrence. Graft and patient survival remained to be similar when receiving grafts from older vs. younger donors.
