Liver elastography, is a non-invasive technique, that has been reported in hepatocellular carcinomas and cirrhosis; however, it is not clear to identify the risk of morbidity and mortality. In addition, hemodynamic alterations and other process that involves post-liver transplantation is an acute cellular rejection (RCA) that can also increase liver stiffness. The results of the previous analysis, morbidity is associated with an RCA severity in the transplanted liver and therefore, can be great help in its evaluation with an elastography. The hypothesis of this study is related to the benefits and viability of the hepatic elastography in the evaluation of the liver transplantation.KEY WORDS: Liver transplantation, Liver disease final stage, Model for the final stage of liver disease, hepatic elastography.
