In Reply We appreciate the thoughtful responses from Goh and Miranda et al to our recent article examining the trends in use of liver grafts from older donors and the outcomes in recipients of liver grafts from older donors.1 We found that use of liver grafts from older donors has decreased over time, and the outcomes of recipients of liver grafts from older donors have improved over time, with a more marked improvement than seen in recipients of liver grafts from younger donors.1
