Abstract

The inclusion of donor middle hepatic vein (MHV) in right-lobe living-donor grafts and the need for reconstruction of the MHV tributaries have long been controversial areas in living-donor liver transplantation. We report technical details in restoration of venous drainage of the anterior sector (segments V and VIII) of the right lobe of the liver graft using a preserved MHV from the recipient liver, and address the issue of reconstruction of donor MHV tributaries without use of an interposition graft. We review clinical situations in which restoration of outflow drainage of the anterior segment of the liver graft should be considered.
