The following details regarding the enrolled deceased liver graft donors were prospectively recorded: sex, age, donor after circulatory or brain death (DCD or DBD), cause of death, body mass index (BMI), ABO blood type, terminal serum sodium level, terminal hepatic and renal function tests, sojourn time in the intensive care unit (ICU), ventilator settings, and need for vasopressors.

The ABO-i LT procedures, Piggy-back LT, were standardly performed at the authors’ single centers, which were specified in detail previously [14]. The following recipient characteristics were collected: sex, age, liver, and renal function tests; coagulation function tests; model for end-stage liver disease (MELD) score; and titers of specific antibodies upon hospitalization for LT. During transplantation, the operation time, cold graft ischemic time, intraoperative blood loss, and blood transfusion volume were recorded.
