The 6,000th liver transplantation was performed at AMC in 26 years after 1992 when liver transplantation was first performed at AMC. This was the world’s fastest achievement.
Until 6,000 liver transplantations were performed, AMC has also made remarkable records in liver transplantation, for instance succeeding not only in modified right lobe graft, dual living donor liver transplantation, and ABO-incompatible living donor liver transplantation for the first time in the world, but also in pediatric living donor liver transplantation, ABO-incompatible pediatric living donor liver transplantation, adult living donor liver transplantation, adult living donor right lobe transplantation, simultaneous liver-kidney transplantation, brain dead adult split liver transplantation, simultaneous liver-heart transplantation, simultaneous liver-lung transplantation, and simultaneous liver-heart-lung transplantation for the first time in Korea.
AMC’s liver transplantation team has developed modified right lobe graft for the first time in the world, significantly increasing the success rates of liver transplantation up to 95%. With 4,990 LDLTs performed which is the largest in the world as well as 97% survival rates, AMC is recognized for its outstanding performance in terms of the prognosis and clinical experience of LDLT.
