Sengstaken Tube Removal under Direct Hemodynamic Monitoring after Post Transplantation Venous Occlusion.

Case Rep Surg 2019 29;2019:6146125. Epub 2019 Aug 29.

Liver Transplant Unit, Department of General Surgery, Hospital General Universitario Gregorio Marañón, Madrid, Spain.

The surgical procedure for orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) is well standardized, and most groups use the retrohepatic caval preservation or piggyback technique to improve hemodynamic tolerance. However, when a discrepancy between the site in the right upper quadrant of the liver recipient and a small graft is present, this technique can provoke a rotation on the axis of the vena cava and cause an occlusion of the suprahepatic vein drainage. This problem can be detected intraoperatively, and several methods have been described to resolve it by placing different devices to correct the position. Read More
