The ELTR is coordinated at the Paul Brousse Hospital in Villejuif since its creation in 1985. A two parts questionnaire (Report of LT and Follow-up report) was established by the ELTR Coordinating Committee. A standardized questionnaire and computerized method for data entry has been developed to collect accurate and uniform data in all liver transplants across the European participating centers. Each Center participate by sending all the LT data and the follow-up of the recipients, and donors in case of living donation.
The coordinating center is responsible for maintaining the data collection system, monitoring the quality of the data (accuracy and completeness), and for data analysis. The ELTR updating is made twice a year (at June 30th and December 31st). Updated results are available in this website at two localizations: Results and Documents to download.
Periodical meetings are organized by the ELTR Committee to review the data and to discuss topics of scientific and clinical interest. Hereunder the ELTR coordinating committee :
