SPLIT-IRTA Email ListServ

The SPLIT leadership recognized the need for real-time exchange of pediatric data in this unprecedented time. In that spirit we are partnering with IRTA to develop a listserv to help track and address both COVID 19 related queries as well as general discussions related to the care of hepatology, pre- and post-liver and intestinal transplant patients.

A recent analysis led by SPLIT investigators

A recent analysis led by SPLIT investigators (Drs. Perito, Hsu, Mogul and Mazariegos) showed that waitlist deaths could be significantly decreased, and liver transplants increased, for children and the sickest adults, by prioritizing children for pediatric livers and with broader national sharing of deceased donor livers, using the Liver Simulated Allocation Model (LSAM) and Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) data. This SharePeds LSAM manuscript was just made available on PubMed:, and will appear in the forthcoming issue of Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition.
