The aim of this article is to analyze the results and the innovation of liver transplantation centre, in San Camillo-Forlanini Hospital using piggyback technique without venovenous bypass and portocaval shunt in the era of extended criteria donors. Between 2002 and 2013, a total of 297 liver transplantations were performed, with the shortest as possible cold ischemia time policy. Over all primary dysfunction and non-function rates were 7.4 and 2.2%. Mortality, morbidity, re-operation and re-liver transplantation rates were 4.4, 25, 6.1 and 1.3%, respectively, and median hospital stay was 18 days (range 8-150). Liver transplantation can be performed with low morbidity and mortality rates.
