Determining risk factors for mortality in liver transplant patients with COVID-19
from The Lancet Gastroenterology & Hepatology
Researchers read with great interest the Correspondence from Bhoori and colleagues describing the effect of coronavirus disease 2019 on their centre's adult liver transplant population. Within their cohort of over 150 transplant recipients, the authors identified six patients with COVID-19, including three resulting deaths. Each of those who died was transplanted over 10 years previously and were older than 65 years, male, overweight, and had hypertension and diabetes. The authors speculated as to whether these characteristics might be major risk factors for mortality.
