Abstract
BACKGROUND: Over the last few decades numerous regional and national registers have been established all over the world with the aim of improving survival in familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). The Danish Polyposis Register was founded in 1971 and coordinates the screening and subsequent prophylactic colectomy of FAP patients. METHODS: The crude cumulative survival in 321 patients (205 probands and 116 call-up cases) with verified FAP was calculated in accordance with the life-table method. RESULTS: At the time of diagnosis of FAP only 2 of 116 (2%) had colorectal cancer versus 142 of 205 probands (69%). The 10-year cumulative survival was 94% (95% confidence limits, 89-99) in call-up cases compared with only 41% (34-49) in probands (p

Abstract
Based on the Danish Polyposis Register epidemiological calculations on familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) were carried out. The mean annual incidence was 1.85 x 10(-6) during the years 1971-1992, and the prevalence increasing to about 32 x 10(-6) at the end of 1992. FAP patients constituted a decreased percentage of all Danish patients with colorectal cancer (0.07% in 1980-1992). The completeness of registration was 97% in 1983-1992. The results are similar to Finnish estimates based on the same direct method of calculation, and as both series are based on almost complete national polyposis registration in well-registered populations we regard our results to be close to the true incidence rate.

Abstract
During a fifteen-year period, 500 liver transplantations have been performed at Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Göteborg. The results have improved, and factors influencing outcome are discussed. A one-year survival rate over 90% and a 5-year survival rate close to 80% can now be expected for most indications. Long-term complications as well as special problems occurring in different groups of recipients are discussed. New indications for liver transplantation such as liver metastasis of endocrine tumors are described. This article also describes our experience of in situ splitting and living-related liver transplantation as well as other innovations such as cavoportal hemitransposition and multivisceral transplantation.

Abstract
Regional and national polyposis registries have been established all over the world over last decades, with the aim to improve survival in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). The Danish Polyposis Register was founded in 1971 and coordinates screening and prophylactic treatment. At the end of 1992 the register included 321 histologically verified FAP patients: 142/205 probands (69%) had colorectal cancer at the time of diagnosis of FAP versus only 2/116 call-up cases (2%). The 10-year cumulative crude survival was 94% among call-up cases versus only 41% among probands (p
