Abstract

We describe a modification of Belghiti's "liver hanging maneuver" applied to the last phase of hepatectomy during OLT with IVC preservation. The proposed maneuver provides a better exposition of the suprahepatic veins allowing an ortogonal clamping of the suprahepatic confluence and avoiding caval clamping. It allows, moreover, an increase of venous surface available for the anastomosis that results wider and easier to perform. This provides a large outflow anastomotic cloaca and prevents outflow problems of the graft.
