|Title:||Prostaglandin E1 for the treatment of primary non-function of the donor organ in liver transplantation.||Austin Authors:||Mollison, L C;Angus, Peter W ;Jones, Robert M||Affiliation:||Victorian Liver Transplant Unit||Issue Date:||1-Jul-1991||Publication information:||Medical Journal of Australia; 155(1): 51-3||Abstract:||To present a case in which acute failure of a liver graft was treated with an infusion of prostaglandin E1 (PGE1).A nine-year-old girl underwent liver transplantation for Wilson's disease. Her course was complicated by primary non-function of the graft as evidenced by poor bile production, rising bilirubin and liver enzyme levels and a severe coagulopathy.PGE1 was infused and there was recovery of graft function. The need for urgent re-transplantation was avoided.PGE1 may have an important role in liver transplantation considering the logistic difficulties of obtaining donor livers for urgent transplantation in Australia.||URI:||https://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/11091||ORCID:||Journal:||Medical Journal of Australia||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/2067441||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Alprostadil.therapeutic use
