Core Tip This was a retrospective study to identify factors associated with futility of liver transplant (LT) in elderly recipients, as well as investigate the risk of certain outcomes such as discharge to facility in elderly LT recipients. Diastolic congestive heart failure (CHF) was found to be a predictor of futility of LT in elderly recipients (P = 0.001). Elderly patients also had nearly twice the risk of being discharged to a facility and had decreased survival at one year. Diastolic CHF may be an important comorbidity for liver transplant committees to consider when deciding whether or not to list elderly patients.
