Impact of aberrant left hepatic artery ligation on the outcome of liver transplantation
The preservation of a graft’s aberrant left hepatic artery (LHA) during liver transplantation (LT) ensures optimal vascularization of the left liver but can also be considered a risk factor for hepatic artery thrombosis (HAT). In contrast, ligation of an aberrant LHA may lead to hepatic ischemia with the potential risk of graft dysfunction and biliary complications. The aim of this ... Read more
