Although hyperdynamic portal inflow and portal hypertension are cornerstones in the development of SFSS, inadequate outflow may aggravate SFSS. Therefore, enlargement of the portal outflow tract by incision of the anterior rim of the orifice of the right hepatic vein (RHV) has been advocated for right lobe LDLT.
