Hepatic volume profiles in potential living liver donors with anomalous right-sided ligamentum teres.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2020 Oct 16. Epub 2020 Oct 16.

Division of Liver Transplantation and Hepatobiliary Surgery, and Departments of Surgery, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Purpose: In living liver donors with rare anatomical anomaly of right-sided ligamentum teres (RSLT), right or left hemiliver procurement is commonly contraindicated. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the hepatic volume profiles in potential donors with RSLT using semi-automated CT volumetry (CTV).

Methods: Among 5535 potential donor candidates in our institution between April 2003 and May 2019, 23 cases of RSLT (0. Read More

[Multimodal approach to clinical liver transplantation].

Zhonghua Wai Ke Za Zhi 2002 Oct;40(10):758-61

Department of Hepatobiliary, First Affiliated Hospital, Nanjing Medical University, Nanjing 210029, China.

Objective: To sum up the clinical experience of liver transplantation.

Method: A retrospective study was made in 11 patients receiving living donor liver transplantation (LDLT)/and 14 patients having orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT), including one time operation of reduced size liver retransplantation and one time operation of cadaveric liver retransplantation.

Results: The voluntary donors were a sister and 10 mothers of recipients. Read More

Paediatric liver transplantation: Queen Mary Hospital experience.

Chin Med J (Engl) 1998 Jul;111(7):610-4

Department of Surgery, University of Hong Kong, Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kong.

Objective: To assess the results of paediatric liver transplantation in our institution.

Methods: From September 1993 to November 1996, 10 living-related liver transplants (LRLT) and 3 reduced-size liver transplants (RSLT) were performed on 12 children at our hospital. The medical records of the patients were reviewed. Read More

Surgical advances in liver transplantation. Living related and split donors.

Clin Liver Dis 2000 Aug;4(3):553-65

Division of Liver and Pancreas Transplantation, Dumont-UCLA Transplant Center, Department of Surgery, University of California Los Angeles School of Medicine, Los Angeles, California, USA.

Surgical innovations to expand an exceedingly small cadaveric liver pool have paved the way for the more complex procedure of adult-to-adult living donation. Although reduced-size liver transplant (RSLT) has provided children and small adults with much needed small size grafts, discarding a part of the liver can no longer be justified in the current era of severe organ shortage. Split liver transplantation may eliminate the need for RSLT and may replace adult-to-adult pediatric donation except in urgent situations. Read More

Liver transplantation in children: the experience of Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kong.

J Pediatr Surg 1997 Jan;32(1):80-3

Department of Surgery, University of Hong Kong, Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kong.

Seven living-related liver transplants (LRLT) and two reduced-size liver transplants (RSLT) were performed on eight children who suffered from end-stage liver disease, having previously undergone one to three abdominal operations. Their ages at initial transplantation ranged from 8 months to 11 years (mean 35 months, median 12 months). Excluding the two older children aged 7 and 11 years, respectively, the rest of the children weighed 6 to 9. Read More

Survival after reduced-size liver transplantation is dependent on pretransplant status.

J Pediatr Surg 1993 Oct;28(10):1307-11

Department of Surgery, Hospital for Sick Children, University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) in children is characterized by unique problems including a shortage of compatible-size donors resulting in long waiting periods, significant deterioration while waiting, and death before transplantation. To improve the chances of obtaining an organ for the sickest patients, reduced-size liver transplantation (RSLT) was offered to all hospital-bound children starting in July 1988. Since then, 68 OLTs were performed in 58 children. Read More

The impact of liver reductions in pediatric liver transplantation.

Arch Surg 1991 Oct;126(10):1278-85; discussion 1285-6

Pacific Transplant Institute, California Pacific Medical Center, San Francisco 94115.

Reduced-size liver transplantation (RSLT) in children was introduced to alleviate a shortage of small-organ donors. The impact of RSLT on the waiting time for an organ and on morbidity and mortality was investigated. Between March 25, 1988, and August 11, 1990, 61 hepatic transplantations were performed in 55 children at the Pacific Transplant Institute in San Francisco, Calif. Read More

Early experience with reduced-size liver transplants.

J Pediatr Surg 1990 Nov;25(11):1157-61

Department of Surgery, University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Scarcity of small donors results in a high mortality rate for children on liver transplant waiting lists. To alleviate this problem, we have recently started to reduce the size of livers from older donors to use in children. In the last year, a total of 20 liver transplants were performed in 17 patients, including seven reduced-size liver transplants (RSLT) in six children. Read More
