SPLIT-IRTA Email ListServ

The SPLIT leadership recognized the need for real-time exchange of pediatric data in this unprecedented time. In that spirit we are partnering with IRTA to develop a listserv to help track and address both COVID 19 related queries as well as general discussions related to the care of hepatology, pre- and post-liver and intestinal transplant patients.

COVID -19 Post Liver Transplantation Data Collection Registry for Pediatric Patients (0-21 years)

Our intention is to collect and disseminate the experience of our community to better understand the clinical presentation, natural history and long-term outcomes in our hepatology and liver and intestinal transplant population.

SPLIT News


A recent analysis led by SPLIT investigators

A recent analysis led by SPLIT investigators (Drs. Perito, Hsu, Mogul and Mazariegos) showed that waitlist deaths could be significantly decreased, and liver transplants increased, for children and the sickest adults, by prioritizing children for pediatric livers and with broader national sharing of deceased donor livers, using the Liver Simulated Allocation Model (LSAM) and Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) data. This SharePeds LSAM manuscript was just made available on PubMed: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30720563, and will appear in the forthcoming issue of Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition.

TTS welcomes SPLIT as an Official Section

As of 2019 the Society of Pediatric Liver Transplantation (SPLIT) will be an Official Section of The Transplantation Society. SPLIT is a community of physicians, surgeons, nurses and other allied health professionals whose mission is to improve the outcomes in children receiving liver transplantation through research, improving care, training and mentoring, and supporting children and families.
