PURPOSE: Liver transplantation (LT) is a complex surgery with potential for a number of short term peri and post operative complications including bleeding, vascular compromise and hemodynamic instability. Most transplant centers utilize some kind of formal or informal approach to assess readiness for early extubation after LT. What is currently lacking in the literature is a risk predictor tool to determine which patients would be a candidate for rapid extubation. The goal of this study was to identify pre and intra-operative factors that could help identify factors associated with successful early extubation post LT.
