This has the only liver transplant unit in Hong Kong, and are world pioneers in living donor liver transplantation. As the unit has matured, the complexity of management has increased. Recipients are older, have more comorbidities, and are technically more challenging. Emergency transplants in patients with acute liver failure complicated by multi-organ failure are particularly challenging. So our unit is developing experience in sepsis management in liver transplantation.
