Some investigators reported that the donor-recipient gender mismatches influence on long-term graft survival after deceased donor liver transplantation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of the donor-recipient gender matches on outcomes after living donor liver transplantation.
We retrospectively reviewed the 830 medical records who underwent living donor liver transplantation in our center (median follow up of 72 months). We analyzed the graft and patient survival rate using Kaplan-Meier method between gender matched group and gender mismatched group.
Donor and recipient baseline characteristic was not significantly different between two groups. Cold ischemic time and graft-recipient weight ratio (GRWR) was also not different (p = 0.220 and p = 0.125).
In this study, gender itself of donor and recipient did not affect the graft and patient survival rate unlike previous studies for deceased donor liver transplantation (p = 0.677 and p = 0.476). In subgroup analysis (dividing the groups into male donor to male recipient, female to female, male to female, female to male), there was also no statistically significant difference in graft and patient survival rate between groups (p = 0.882 and p = 0.790).
Donor-recipient gender mismatches did not affect long-term graft and patient survival rate in living donor liver transplantation in this study.
