Brief Summary:
This study is being done to determine if patients receiving (iNO) will have increased liver function and less damage from IR than patients who do not receive (iNO).

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Placebo and Study Procedure: Inhaled Nitric Oxide (iNO)
iNO or placebo will be administered at 40 ppm during the procedure starting when the Warm Ischemia Time begins - liver from ice. Stop when patient transported to ICU

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate the role of iNO in early ischemia reperfusion injury in marginal liver grafts during human orthotopic liver or liver/kidney transplantation. [ Time Frame: 24 hours to 1 month ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. iNO group will show accelerated restoration of liver allograft function following liver transplantation and this may translate to better clinical outcomes. Marginal grafts may function better in the treated group [ Time Frame: 1 month to 1 year ]
