Patient survival in 235 hepatitis C virus (HCV)-positive patients. Patients coinfected with HCV and hepatitis B virus (HBV) had comparable survival 12 years after transplant as those infected with HCV alone although fibrosis was more common in dually infected patients. Results were based on 27 biopsies in patients who were both HCV positive and HBV positive and 81 biopsies in patients who were both HCV positive and HBV negative. Over time, liver failure occurred more frequently in patients who were both HCV and HBV positive (17%) than in patients who were both HCV positive and HBV negative (7%).
