The research program "Innovative strategies to expand cadaveric donor pool for liver transplantation" (SITF Project) has been formally approved in 2002 by Italian Ministry of Health (IMH) as a two-years experimental project. The main goals of the SITF Project are to improve matching criteria for split liver transplantation (SLT) in both pediatric and adult recipients, to promote an increase of the SLT/full-size liver transplantation ratio at the national level, and to establish shared criteria for SLT in two adult recipients. The original executive plan of SITF Project prefigured the participation of both the Italian transplantation Centers with more advanced experience in the field of SLT, and institutional partnership such as Nord Italia Transplant (NITp) and Italian National Transplant Center. A first Web public area concerning the SITF Project has been activated, as well as a reserved Web area with the aim to shared cadaveric donors and patients in the waiting lists between Operative Units involved in the research program. For this objective, a specific Oracle-based database able to perform an automatic matching between a single cadaveric donor and two potential adult recipients has been released in the beta version. The SITF Project represents a new approach in the management of SLT for two adults recipients in Italy, and a model for a functional network between Italian transplantation Centers.
