A facilitated technique of porcine donor hepatectomy is reported underlying the possibility to make an easy procedure without in situ portal perfusion, so other abdominal organs supplied by superior mesenteric system can be harvested at the same time. The viability of those grafts procured without in situ portal perfusion has been compared with an other group of livers harvested with in situ aortic and portal flushing. The evaluation of the histology and early graft function two hours after riperfusion has shown no differences between both groups.
