Abstract

We report details of the experience from the largest Italian program with hepatic living donation, focusing particularly on the use of intraoperative ultrasound in liver transplantation and living donation. During a 12-year period we changed our surgical technique in the conventional open procedures thanks to the experience gained into the laparoscopic setting. Intraoperative ultrasound has been implemented during these delicate procedures for ensuring a fast and safer detection of the accessory veins and final severing of the vascular stumps during liver transection.
