Early onset hepatic venous outflow obstruction after pediatric split liver transplantation: Liver salvage using cardiopulmonary bypass

Publication date2019
Abstract

We read with great interest the Letter from the Frontline by Chung et al., reporting on the successful surgical rescue of an early-onset hepatic venous outflow obstruction after pediatric living donor liver transplantation (LT).(1) Reports describing procedures for hepatic vein thrombosis after LT in children are extremely sparse, and an urgent re-LT is typically recommended. We herein share a previously unreported type of salvage procedure for this rare but severe complication.
