Abstract

This study is designed to measure the impact of orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) on patients' health-related quality of life. Two types of health-related quality-of-life questionnaires were administered at baseline andafter OLT: generic (Medical Outcomes Study Short Form 36) and liver specific (Chronic Liver Disease Questionnaire), We also recorded clinical, demographic, and laboratory data. Pre-OLT scores of liver transplant candidates were compared with those of the general population and patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), Thirty-seven liver transplant candidates were evaluated: 25 men and 12 women; age, 50.2 +/- 12 years; Child's class A, 30 patients; class B, 30 patients; class C, 4 patients; and galactose elimination capacity, 277 +/- 81. Health-related quality-of-life scores for patients awaiting liver transplants were significantly lower than those for patients with COPD and CHF and those in the general population. Sex and cause of liver disease did not affect the scores. There was a weak but significant inverse correlation between some aspects of health-related quality of life and both age (r = -0.31 to -0.34) and worsening of the Child-Pugh score (r = -0.32 to -0.43),AU measured aspects of health-related quality of life significantly improved after OLT,and mental health scores were indistinguishable from the population norms. Similar improvements were evident in physical and disease-specific aspectsof health-related quality of life, but some residual dysfunction persisted.
