Recurrence of HCV post liver transplantation is universal, and clinically significant recurrence can have a major impact on both patient and graft survival. Prediction of patients that will go on to significant recurrence allow for both close follow up and consideration for anti-viral therapy. The present study shows that steatosis in the early post liver […]
