The purpose of the Monothematic Conference is to provide up-to-date scientific evidence on the role of liver transplantation in patients with acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) or in active drinkers who are in urgent need of a liver transplant. More specifically, the two morning sessions will be dedicated to the diagnosis of ACLF and to the crucial issue of access to liver transplantation for patients with severe ACLF across Europe. The afternoon sessions will focus on the current treatment of alcoholic hepatitis and the place of liver transplantation in active drinkers. For both topics there will be round table discussion based on clinical cases.
The Monothematic Conference will take place on 18–19 April 2024 during the ELITA Summit 2024 in Madrid, Spain.
This conference is addressed to liver and transplant surgeons, hepatologists, intensive care specialist, transplant anaesthesiologists, transplant fellows.
