Abstract:


The purpose of this retrospective survey was to describe posttransplant recidivism and return to work rates for adult liver transplant recipients with histories of alcohol-related liver disease (ARLD) or ARLD and polysubstance use. Recidivism from alcohol was the primary substance analyzed.

One hundred and twenty-two adult liver transplant recipients comprised the convenience sample; 98 had histories of ARLD and 24 had both ARLD and polysubstance use. Using a mailed survey, the recipients were asked about their drug and alcohol use (both prior to and following the transplant); family and social issues; and whether they were working posttransplant.

The two subgroups of recipients differed with respect to the variables gender, age, and years posttransplant with the ARLD/polysubstance using recipients more likely to be male, younger, and more recent transplant recipients than those with ARLD, alone. Recidivism and return to work rates differed for the two subgroups.
