Réhabilitation précoce en chirurgie de transplantation hépatique : étude RAC-TH

Abstract : Background: Improvements in perioperative surgical and medical care after liver transplantation have led to a reduction in morbidity and mortality. The concept of accelerated enhanced post-operative recovery has never been studied for liver transplant surgery. The objective of the study was to evaluate the possibility of discharge at day 7 after liver transplantation in a cohort of pre-selected patients, and as secondary outcomes, readmission rate, death rate, total length of hospitalization, and occurrence of surgical complications. Methods: 10 patients were prospectively included between November 2018 and July 2020, at the University Hospital of Rennes. Their peri operative datas has been analyzed. The statistical analysis was purely descriptive. Results: At day 7, 20% (n =2/10 patients). All patients were discharged before day 30. The readmission rate was 30% (n =3/10). The total length of hospitalization in the first month was 14.6 days +/- 7 days. The death rate was zero. There were 4 surgical complications in the first month. Conclusion: In a study including a small number of patients, discharge from hospital on day 7 after liver transplantation only concerned a minority of patients. A larger study could help identify risk factors for non-early discharge.
