ABSTRACT: In this study, we primarily focused on the long-term outpatient management of pediatric patients who received a liver transplant. We discuss some suggestions to improve long-term outcomes for this patient population. Compliance is thought to be a critical issue during follow-up. Adequate transition between pediatric and adult care will smooth the process of maintaining or improving compliance. More research is needed to improve the transition process.
