Abstract

With recent medical advances, more patients with childhood-onset liver disease and more pediatric liver transplant recipients are surviving into adulthood, generating distinctive challenges to adult primary care providers. Young adults with pediatric liver disease are a unique cohort of patients with different evaluation and monitoring strategies, treatment, complications, and comorbidities. This creates a critical need for successful transition of these patients into adult care, with incorporation of a formal transitional model and multidisciplinary team.
