Routine inclusion of the middle hepatic vein in the graft will eliminate the necessity of excluding a donor with a small right hepatic vein and increase the applicability of the procedure [12]. As shown in this series, the inclusion of the middle hepatic vein in the graft did not induce liver failure in the donor. Cholestasis occurred in three donors, but overt clinical and biochemical manifestations of liver failure did not occur. If the segment IVb hepatic vein is retained with the donor, the liver function of the donor is not seriously impaired.

9 years), actual patient and graft survival rates are both 98%. Discussion Obtaining grafts from live donors for liver transplantation is an important resource in countries where cadaveric donation is rare. This is currently the only way of effectively increasing the liver graft supply in Asia. While it was initially established to provide grafts for pediatric recipients, the development of techniques for right-lobe liver grafting have expanded the indications to include adult recipients. The majority of LDLTs in Taiwan are performed at the Kaohsiung CGMH, which is fast becoming a major referral center for the whole country, with 39% of recipients coming from northern Taiwan, 33% from central Taiwan, and 28% from southern Taiwan.

The leftlobe grafts were used in the first five adult-to-adult LDLTs. After failure in two patients, right-lobe grafts were used exclusively in all subsequent patients. Donor Evaluation All donors were evaluated preoperatively by hematology, biochemistry, and virus serology tests, and by a clinical psychologist to ensure that the donation was truly voluntary.
