Abstract

Living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) remains a major transplant modality in Japan and accounts for 99% of total liver transplantation. LDLT for adult patients has increased rapidly in the last five years and now occupies a majority. Among 297 adult LDLT patients in Kyoto University Hospital, indications for HBV- or HCV-related diseases account for 38% including cirrhosis combined with hepatocellular carcinoma and fulminant hepatitis. The paper outlines general and rather specific problems relating peritransplant management and results in LDLT for viral diseases.
