Özet

We have previously reported our experience in inferior vena cava resection and reconstruction techniques during liver transplantation for Budd-Chiari syndrome. Herein, we present on a case that demonstrates the importance of experience in complex vascular reconstruction techniques for living donor liver transplantation. A 15-year-old boy was scheduled for living donor liver transplantation for Budd-Chiari syndrome. Venous occlusion was extended up to the right atrial orifice of the supra-hepatic vena cava. Retro- and supra-hepatic segments of the vena cava was resected. Inferior vena cava graft stored in deep-freeze was available. Venous reconstruction was performed with end-to-end atrio-caval anastomosis. Surgical treatment was completed with the implantation of the right liver lobe donated by the patient's mother. Post-surgical course was uneventful.
