Formatted Abstract/Summary
Introduction: Growth recovery is important in quality of life for long term patients after organ transplantation. Patients transplanted in infancy may not complete growth until 20yrs post transplant. Limited information is available about growth beyond 10yrs post transplant. Our aim was to assess height and weight recovery up to 15yrs after liver transplant in childhood.

Summary/Conclusions: Long term survivors after childhood liver transplant can expect to have ongoing height recovery for at least 10 years. Weight recovery is most marked within the first year. Since weight recovers more than height, these children maybe at risk of developing obesity in future.
