In November 2010, the OPTN/UNOS Board of Directors approved the Liver Recipient Explant Pathology Form for patients with an approved HCC Exception at the time of transplant. The new form will enable centers to consistently report post-transplant pathology results. The form will be introduced once it is approved by the federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
UNOS will schedule a Live Meeting training session to familiarize transplant programs with the changes. We will inform you of training and registration details through the member e-newsletter and will send out a system notice before the form is implemented in UNet.
