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:, and will appear in the forthcoming issue of Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition.

SPLIT Frequently Asked Questions

Since its inception in 1995, SPLIT steadily grew into an established collaborative, integrated infrastructure and community with synergistic platforms in research, education, patient advocacy, mentorship, quality improvement and clinical care. Over the years, SPLIT’s primary goal of improving outcomes for children who have undergone liver transplantation were powered via pharmaceutical (SPLIT 1.0), United States National Institutes of Health Grant (SPLIT 2.0), and self-funded (SPLIT 3.0) strategies. As the SPLIT Executive Council looked toward the future, it became clear that joining forces with a self-governing society with vast administrative and infrastructural support such as TTS would ensure the next chapter of SPLIT (4.0) to achieve and excel in our targeted mission to improve the lives of children who require liver transplantation.

The SPLIT Registry will continue to be supported by the Data Coordinating Center (DCC) at Emmes. The Registry website and data system can be found at Participating centers will continue to be invoiced every January to provide $5,000 to support the Registry.
