The introduction of living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) has been one of the most remarkable steps in the field of liver transplantation (LT), able to significantly expand the scarce donor pool in countries in which the growing demands of organs are not met by the shortage of available cadaveric grafts. Although the benefits of this procedure are enormous, the physical and psychological sacrifice of the donors is immense, and the expectations for a good outcome for themselves, as well as… 
Living donor liver transplantation
TLDR
Over the course of two decades, improved techniques and a more holistic approach to LDLT have yielded excellent donor and recipient outcomes, with increasing sophistication of the preoperative donor workup, more liberal use of adult-to-adult left lobe liver transplantation, and introduction of inflow modification among the most noteworthy improvements.
Analysis of Donor Motivations in Living Donor Liver Transplantation
TLDR
The absolute absence of coercion on the living-liver donor’s motives may not be realistic because of the serious condition of the potential recipient, and it is mandatory that the donor is truly willing to donate.
Evaluation of donors for living donor liver transplantation (LDLT).
TLDR
Donor selection and evaluation have become one of the important steps prior to LDLT, aiming to exclude donors who may have high risks from LDLT and to assure that LDLT recipients will receive perfect liver grafts.
Utilization of elderly donors in living donor liver transplantation: When more is less?

  • 2011
TLDR
There was a significant correlation between the rate of major complications and the type of surgery in donors who were 50 years old or older and in LDLT, extending the limits of surgery comes at the price of more complications in elderly donors.
Liver Living Donation for Cancer Patients: Benefits, Risks, Justification.
TLDR
LDLT covers all standard indications for liver transplantation, and the results are similar or even better than for standard DDLT, and it is essential to seek adequate informed consent focused on risk, benefits and outcome benefits of both donor and recipient supported by an independent living donor advocate.
Calculating the liver lobe weight for transplantation
  • E. Chaib, E. Massad
  • Medicine
    Transplant international : official journal of the European Society for Organ Transplantation
  • 2008
TLDR
The aim of this study was to identify a relationship for predicting donor total liver weight as well as donor right and left hepatic lobe weight on the basis of only on donor body weight for transplantation.
Live donor adult liver transplantation
TLDR
Increasing the number of living-donor liver transplants would allow us to expedite transplant, avoid death on the waitlist, and possibly save more lives by expanding the criteria for transplant.
Donor Complications Associated With Living Donor Liver Transplantation in Japan
TLDR
The accumulated experience indicates a reduction in the incidence of donor complications, especially for right lobe resection, during 18 years of living donor liver transplantation experience in Japan.
Living donor liver transplantation: effect of the type of liver graft donation on donor mortality and morbidity
  • L. Kousoulas, T. Becker, +5 authors F. Lehner
  • Medicine
    Transplant international : official journal of the European Society for Organ Transplantation
  • 2011
TLDR
Right lobe donation was associated with prolonged hospital stay, increased blood transfusions and prolonged operating time when compared with left and left lateral lobe donation, whereas donor mortality and morbidity did not differ between these groups.
A model of risk and protective factors influencing the postoperative course of living liver donors.
TLDR
A model of risk and protective factors influencing the donors' postoperative courses is developed, which could be used to assess living liver donors psychosocially before and after donation, thus enhancing selection and support.

TLDR
All efforts should be made to improve deceased donor donation so as to minimize the need for live donors, and transplant physicians, particularly surgeons, must take responsibility for regulating and overseeing these procedures.

Living donor liver transplantation.
TLDR
In recent years, LDLT has been shown to be a clinically safe addition to deceased donor liver transplantation (DDLT) and has been able to significantly extend the scarce donor pool and play an important role in the future of LT.

TLDR
All donors are alive and well after donation; almost all donors were able to return to predonation employment status within a few months; most donors have mild persistent abdominal symptoms, and some donors had a change in body image that they attribute to the donor surgery.
Applicability of living donor liver transplantation to high-urgency patients.
TLDR
When cadaveric organ donation is scarce, emergency liver transplantation from living donors can be applied to high-urgency adult patients.

TLDR
Quality of life after donation did not change, however, donors had a prolonged period of physical rehabilitation, and 41% experienced financial disadvantages.
Living donor liver transplantation: present status and recent advances.
TLDR
Recent trends and surgical techniques for LDLT include selective vascular occlusion techniques for donor hepatectomy, hepatic arterial reconstruction under the microscope and the introduction of intraoperative ultrasound, graft volume estimation and hepatic venous reconstruction, all of which have improved the success rate of LDLT over the past few years.
Liver splitting and living donor techniques.
TLDR
In the short term, SLT and LRT are the methods more apt to increase the organ pool and thus decrease pre-transplant mortality both in children and adults.
