Core Tip With the intent of developing strategies to increase the donor pool, we set-up a multicenter study involving 3 Liver Transplant Centers in Italy between March 2004 and May 2010. 1408 patients underwent liver transplantation during the study period, and 28 received the graft from hepatitis B surface antigen positive (HBsAg)-positive deceased donors. None primary non-function, re-liver transplantation, early or late hepatic artery thrombosis occurred. Our results show that transplantation of grafts from deceased HBsAg positive donors is feasible and this represents a way to expand the donor pool, especially in the high-endemic areas where a large proportion of patients are highly viremic and HBeAg positive.
