Abstract

Despite its vast potential, concerns about donor safety continue to limit the expansion of living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT) in Western countries. In light of the technical refinements, relatively lower risk of complications with left lobe (LL) LDLT with comparable outcomes, and the overriding concern for donor safety, there is renewed interest in using LL allograft as the first choice for LDLT; thereby, fundamentally shifting the risks of LDLT from the donor to the recipient. There is ample evidence that LL LDLT when performed with graft inflow modification where indicated, has long-term outcomes as good as cadaveric LT.
