BACKGROUND/AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate safety of donors of liver fragments of different size and regeneration of the remaining liver. METHODOLOGY Between October 1999 and January 2007 liver segments II and III were harvested from 90 donors and segments II, III and IV from 10 donors. Liver volumetry by computed tomography (CT) and biochemical(More)
Ultrasound examination is a valuable method in diagnosing visceral vasoconstriction of atherosclerotic origin, as well as constriction related to the compression of the celiac trunk. Given the standard stenosis recognition criteria of >70%, the increase in peak systolic velocity (PSV) over 200 cm/s in the celiac trunk; of PSV > 275 cm/s in the superior(More)
BACKGROUND Computerized tomography-assisted volumetry permits one to estimate the volume of the liver graft as well as to monitor the regeneration in the donor for living- related liver transplantation (LRLT). METHODS The size of the whole liver and of the segments II, III, and IV was assessed in 64 living-related liver donors by preoperative computerized(More)
