Quality of life after liver transplant.
The purpose of this study was to compare the quality of life and health related variables in two groups of liver transplant patients, one at 2 years or less after transplant and the other at more than 2 years after transplant.
Both groups reported a high overall quality of life and an above average health status.
Long-term transplant patients reported significantly more health-related functional impairment and a tendency toward higher levels of depressed and axious moods.
The high quality of life suggested that patients were coping effectively with the realities of life, despite health-related functional impairment.
