Assessment of potential liver allograft donors with frozen sections has clinical relevant consequences for the transplant recipient. Several clinical risk factors have been identified that increase the risk of transplantation failure and it is critical for the pathologist to become familiar with the histologic criteria for donor liver suitability. In this setting an accurate and reliable assessment of fibrosis is crucial. We sought to report the value of the rapid chromotrope aniline blue stain (CAB) in a transplantation clinical work-flow for scoring liver fibrosis.

Abstract

Assessment of potential liver allograft donors with frozen sections has clinical relevant consequences for the transplant recipient. Several clinical risk factors have been identified that increase the risk of transplantation failure and it is critical for the pathologist to become familiar with the histologic criteria for donor liver suitability. In this setting an accurate and reliable assessment of fibrosis is crucial. We sought to report the value of the rapid chromotrope aniline blue stain (CAB) in a transplantation clinical work-flow for scoring liver fibrosis.
