Members of the Society for the Advancement of Transplant Anesthesia (Miami, Florida) read “Bacchus Listed for a Liver Transplant” with considerable interest.1  We understand this piece was intended as “creative expression” and anticipate all publications in a scientific journal still adhere to accepted principles of scholarly review, and that artistic privilege plays on the imagery and presentation of a topic to enrich our understanding in substantial and meaningful ways. But good creative expression doesn’t misrepresent the facts. This prose fails scientific scrutiny as it misleads the reader by painting a picture of irreverent patients and a derelict transplant system that is simply wrong.
