Abstract

Living-related donor liver transplantation is the newest and both technically and ethically most challenging evolution in liver transplantation and has contributed to reduction in donor shortage. We briefly report the technical aspects of surgical procedures performed to achieve a partial graft from a live donor. Eighty-four adult and two pediatric recipients underwent living-related donor liver transplantation at our center. There were no donor deaths, and all patients returned to their normal activities after the perioperative period. This single-center experience may contribute to refinement of the surgical technique required to improve the outcome of these complex operations.
