Background: In this study, we present the results of two patients with vascular graft migration to the duodenum after liver transplantation.
Methods: The results of two patients who underwent living donor liver transplantation and vascular graft to the duodenum were evaluated.
Results: In our center, 201 liver transplants were performed, including 154 a right lobe living donor liver transplant. A synthetic graft was used to reconstruct segment 5 and 8 hepatic veins in 78 of the 154 LDLT. During the mean follow-up 19.6 ± 12.1 months (1-44 months), graft migrated to the duodenum in two patients who were present in this study. Contrary to the literature, it was followed nonoperatively. No problem was observed in the follow-up process.
Conclusion: In patients with vascular graft migration to the duodenum after living liver transplantation, non-operative follow-up can be performed in appropriate patients.
