Reduced-sized Orthotopic Liver Graft in Hepatic Transplantation in Children

Abstract

Because of the rarity of child donors, in cases of adult donors room requirement for the liver graft is a major technical obstacle to liver transplantation in children. To overcome this difficulty in a child, the authors performed an orthotopic transplantation with an adult liver that had been reduced to the left lobe. The absence of technically-related complications suggests that this procedure might facilitate the performance of liver transplantation in children.
