UNLABELLED Orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) has historically been associated with massive blood loss and hemodynamic instability related to the coexistence of varices, coagulopathy, thrombocytopenia, and portal hypertension. Piggyback hepatectomy (PGB) is a technique increasingly utilized in OLT to avoid veno-venous bypass and vena cava clamping. This study evaluated the factors associated with blood loss and blood product requirement in PGB. METHODS This study is a retrospective review… CONTINUE READING
