Resumo: OBJECTIVE: Recognizing the potential impact of psychiatric and psychosocial factors on liver transplant patient outcomes is essential to apply special follow-up for more vulnerable patients. The aim of this article was to investigate the psychiatric and psychosocial factors predicted medical outcomes of liver transplanted patients. METHODS: We studied 150 consecutive transplant candidates, attending our outpatient transplantation clinic, including 84 who had been grafted 11 of whom died and 3 retransplanted. RESULTS: We observed that active coping was an important predictor of length of stay after liver transplantation. Neuroticism and social support were important predictors of mortality after liver transplantation. CONCLUSION: It may be useful to identify patients with low scores for active coping and for social support and high scores for neuroticism to design special modes of follow-up to improve their medical outcomes.
