Graft hyperperfusion in small-for-size grafts (SFSG) is considered the main causal factor of small-for-size syndrome (SFSS). We compared SFSG with a graft-to-recipient body ratio < or =0.8, with and without graft inflow modulation (GIM) by means of a hemi-portocaval shunt (HPCS). Thirteen patients underwent adult-to-adult living donor liver transplantation (AALDLT): G1, n = 5 [4 right livers (RL) and 1 left liver (LL)] without GIM, and G2, n = 8 (4 RL and 4 LL) with GIM. In G2 patients, portal… CONTINUE READING
