poster description
Conclusions: Liver recipients transplanted under the age of 21 are able to maintain pregnancy with 75% resulting in a livebirth. Pregnancy, potential risks for mother and newborn, and long-term maternal survival should be discussed with the recipient and the parents of the recipient. Transplant centers are encouraged to report pregnancy outcomes in these recipients to the NTPR.
