Core Tip There are no established risk factors or scoring systems to predict alcohol relapse after transplantation for alcoholic liver disease. Studies regarding the “6-mo rule” demonstrated heterogeneous findings, suggesting that this rule is not a reliable predictor of relapse. Comorbid psychiatric conditions, lack of social support, and tobacco use are consistently associated with alcohol relapse. Scoring systems have been proposed, but have not been validated. Alcohol relapse may be associated with graft rejection and graft loss, though reduction in long-term survival may be attributed to cardiovascular disease and de-novo malignancies rather than alcohol-related hepatic complications.
