Abstract

Globally, an estimated one million deaths occur annually due
to complications of cirrhosis. Cirrhosis with end stage liver
disease [ESLD] is a leading cause death due to non-
communicable diseases in Sri Lanka. Non-alcoholic fatty
liver disease [NAFLD] and alcohol related liver disease
[ARLD] are the principal causes of ESLD due to cirrhosis in
Sri Lanka. Liver transplantation remains the only curative
treatment for such patients. Multiorgan dysfunction and
hemodynamic instability characteristic of ESLD adds to the
complexity of perioperative care in liver transplantation.
Maintenance of stable hemodynamics including optimal
hemostasis forms the core of the anaesthetic strategy in liver
transplantation.
