Relapse of liver disease (HR 6.609), high levels of FVIII (HR 1.0008) and low levels of antithrombin (HR 0.946) have been independently associated with mortality from the time of liver transplantation in a multivariable Cox regression model. Split Liver Transplant: In some cases, it is possible to divide the donor liver into two parts and transplant the parts into two recipients or in the case of the live donor liver transplant too.
