Description
Background : The aim of this study is to clarify the regeneration of the CL (caudate lobe) without any reconstructions of short hepatic veins (SHVr) after LDLT (living donor liver transplantation) and compare the regeneration of the CL after right hepatectomy (Rt. Hx), as the surrogate model of extended left lobe graft (Ex LLG) with complete SHVr. Methods : Eleven Ex LLGs with CL were included in this study. SHVr was not performed in all cases. The volumetry was performed before, one month and six months after LDLT. Seven patients who underwent Rt. Hx were also included in this study as the surrogate model. Results : In Ex LLGs with CL, the regeneration rate of the large CL (> 30 ml) was worse than that of small CL (< 30 ml). In the surrogate model, the regeneration rate of the CL was not worse than other segments. However, the regeneration rate of the large CL was also worse than that of small CL even in the presence of complete SHVr. Conclusions : The regeneration of the large CL was worse than that of the small CL regardless of the presence or absence of SHVr, indicating that SHVr in Ex LLG with CL might not be necessary.
