The SPLIT Registry is a prospective, observational study to assess outcomes in pediatric liver transplant recipients. Our research focus is to characterize patient and graft survival, graft function, and patient morbidity. The knowledge gained to date has helped us understand predictors of pre-transplant risk and post-transplant complications and has changed practice. The SPLIT Registry has also served as the foundation for other pediatric liver transplantation research. Most importantly SPLIT has generated questions that can only be answered by continued collaborative work.
Our goal is to address the gaps in knowledge that remain in the field of pediatric liver transplantation and ultimately improve outcomes in children receiving liver transplants. We believe the best way to meet this goal is through the collaboration of transplant centers within the SPLIT Registry which have proven that they are capable to conduct clinical research and answer important questions in the field.
