The purpose

Organ transplantation has a special place in the medical field. It symbolizes a medicine whose limits always seem to be repelled. Because transplantation is unusual, it places people in front of outstanding issues which he has to cope with his personality and history. Factors involved in the psychology of patient presenting with graft are past and present psychic functioning, object relations, experience of transplantation itself and quality of social environment. Before or after graft defense mechanisms can be so intense that they can make the patient unable to overcome the graft. Yet as a pathological mechanism that denial was considered beneficial provided it is short. The aim of this study is to evaluate on psychopathological influence of psychological defense mechanisms used by liver transplant patients on their somatic psychological and social outcome.
