Validation of graft and standard liver size predictions in right liver
living donor liver transplantation.
A lot of non-invasive parameters associated with portal hypertension have been assessed in various studies for predicting high risk EVs for example splenic diameter, liver stiffness, platelet count, spleen thickness, Platelet/Spleen diameter ratio, Right liver
lobe diameter/serum albumin ratios, international normalized ratio, serum albumin, portal vein diameter (PVD), Child-Pugh score and elastography.
Therefore, various non-invasive parameters have been studied to predict EV in cirrhotic patients including platelet count/spleen diameter (PC/SD) ratio, right liver
lobe diameter (RLLD)/albumin ratio and left liver lobe diameter (LLLD)/albumin ratio.
Congenital agenesis of a liver lobe affects the left lobe more than right liver
However, during the LLR procedure for left liver sectors, we always open the Glisson sheath and clamp vessels and bile ducts, respectively, to avoid the mis-clamping of variant vessels draining in the right anterior sector and hepatic bile ducts collecting from the right liver
The right liver
mass was noted to be compressing the portal vein and common bile duct.
As the age was increasing PVD and the right liver
lobe increased with significant P value of Less than 0.
The Dawn reports that Hanif was diagnosed with a tumour in his right liver
lobe four weeks back when he went to a hospital in Karachi complaining of itching on top of his stomach.
Sonography of the abdomen showed an echo-inhomogeneous haematoma below the right liver
lobe (13x7 cm) and fluid collection below the right diaphragm (7x4 cm).
Notably, all hepatoblastomas in this series occurred in the right liver
Physicians in Italy announced they have performed the world's first minimally invasive right liver
lobe resection and procurement for an adult-to-adult living-donor liver transplant.
A new abdominal CT showed an increase in the size of hepatic infarctions in the right liver
, and puncture of the infarcted area revealed purulent material.
