Regardless of duration, recipients showed lower scores on most quality of life dimensions than the general population. However, high PTG was associated with a significantly higher score on the vitality quality of life dimension (p=0.021). In recipients with high PTG, specific quality of life dimensions, such as bodily pain (p=0.307), vitality (p=0.890) and mental health (p=0.353), even equalled scores in the general population, whereas scores on general health surpassed them (p=0.006). Furthermore, liver transplant recipients (n=216) compared with their caregivers showed higher t…||7||||["Mar\u00eda \u00c1ngeles P\u00e9rez-San-Gregorio", "Agust\u00edn Mart\u00edn-Rodr\u00edguez", "Mercedes Borda-Mas", "Mar\u00eda Luisa Avargues-Navarro", "Jos\u00e9 P\u00e9rez-Bernal", "Rupert Conrad", "Miguel \u00c1ngel G\u00f3mez-Bravo"]||||["Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness"]||[[""]]|
