[Anesthesia for venoplasty of right hepatic vein and liver portion of inferior vena cava using veno-venous bypass].

Abstract

A patient with Budd-Chiari syndrome who underwent a new surgical technique; venoplasty of right hepatic vein and liver portion of inferior vena cava using veno-venous bypass, was reported. The patient was 31 year-old man whose weight and height were 55 kg and 157 cm, respectively. During the anesthetic management of this patient, we encountered following problems; continuous massive bleeding, profound hypothermia and hemodynamic derangement. These problems were similar to those of liver surgery using veno-venous bypass such as extracorporeal liver surgery and liver transplantation.
