Core Tip Alcoholic cirrhosis remains the second most common indication for liver transplantation. Due to effective immune suppression regimens, graft loss and recurrent alcoholic liver disease rarely leads to mortality. However, the development of non-hepatic disorders such as malignancy and metabolic syndrome contributes to long-term morbidity and mortality. Although recidivism does impact long-term survival, data on the accuracy of 6 mo rule in predicting recidivism are scanty and controversial. Emerging data on the beneficial role of liver transplant provides a ray of hope for select patients with alcoholic hepatitis.
