BACKGROUND Ischemic-type biliary lesions (ITBLs) play an extremely important role in influencing the long-term survival and quality of life of recipients after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). Some patients can be cured by interventional therapies, however others lose their grafts at last and receive liver retransplantation (re-OLT). The aim of this(More)
Mesenchymal hamartomas of the liver (MHLs) in adults are rare and potentially premalignant lesions, which present as solid/cystic neoplasms. We report a rare case of orthotopic liver transplantation in a patient with a giant MHL. In 2013, a 34-year-old female sought medical advice after a 2-year history of progressive abdominal distention and respiratory(More)
OBJECTIVE The treatment algorithm of donor middle hepatic vein (MHV) was made depending on the remnant liver volume of the total donor liver volume as calculated by computer tomography, estimated graft-to-recipient weight ratio and also anatomy. The present study was to analyze the influence of this algorithm upon the safety of donors and recipients in(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the living donor selection, donor hepatectomy technique, and surgical complication in living donor liver transplantation. METHODS From June 2007 to July 2008, 74 consecutive cases living donor hepatectomy were performed by the same surgical team. Seventy-four donors (64 males and 10 females) with a mean age of 29.2 years old passed(More)
OBJECTIVE To report experiences of liver re-transplantation. METHODS The cause of re-transplantation, the pre-operative MELD score, timing of re-transplantation, technical considerations, 1 year survival rate and the causes of death of the patients receiving liver re-transplantation in First Central Hospital of Tianjin between January 1999 and December(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyze the survival rate of orthotopic liver retransplantation (Re-OLT) and identify the variables predicting the outcome. METHODS A retrospective analysis of 74 Re-OLT patients from January 1999 to December 2005 was performed. The univariate analysis of Kaplan-Meier model was used to investigate the relativity between the factors and(More)
