Does the “Piggy-back” Liver Transplantation Have a Detrimental Effect on Venous Drainage

Summary

Venous drainage in “Piggy-back” Liver Transplantation “Piggy-back” orthotopic liver transplant (OLT) may offer some advantages (hemodynamic stability without veno-venous bypass) over standard OLT, but there is concern about the risk of venous outflow obstruction associated with this technique. In this study (n = 19 piggy-back, n = 12 standard OLT) it was possible to show, by means of duplex scanning, that flow velocity, resistance and flow of hepatic veins do not differ significantly.
