Abstract

In summary, the surgical technique for split-liver transplants for two adult recipients continues to undergo refinements. Preservation of the IVC with the right lobe followed by bench reconstruction of middle hepatic vein tributaries offers several advantages for these recipients, including improved outflow, decreased warm ischemic time, and a less technically involved procedure. The left lobe is not compromised by performing the split in this fashion.
