Gerber Co-Authors Liver Transplant Study

April 30, 2012 - Dr. David Gerber, UNC Transplant Surgery, was the co-author of a study that shows that liver transplants performed at night or on weekends do not adversely affect patient or graft survival.

A new study, funded in part by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), shows that liver transplants performed at night or on weekends do not adversely affect patient or graft survival.  Findings available in the May issue of Liver Transplantation, a journal published by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases, demonstrate that safety measures in place are working to protect patients.
