According to our study, the most common morphology of the IRHV was a single main trunk entering the IVC without tributaries, observed in 58.5 % (96/164) of patients, the second most common was two main trunks with a V-shape at the IRHV-caval confluence observed in 19.5 % (14/164) of the patients, and the third most common was two trunks entering the IVC separately, seen in 17.0 % of the patients.
The most common morphology of the IRHV was a single main trunk, followed by two main trunks with a V-shape and two trunks entering the IVC separately.
Adult LDLT is safely achieved with better outcome to recipients and donors by recovering the right lobe without MHV, provided that significant MHV tributaries (segments V, VIII more than 5 mm) are reconstructed, and any accessory considerable inferior right hepatic veins (IRHVs) or superficial RHVs are anastomosed.
In our institute, we believe that adult LDLT is safely achieved with better outcome to both recipients and donors by harvesting the right lobe graft without MHV, provided that significant MHV tributaries (segments V and VIII more than 5 mm) are reconstructed, and any accessory considerable inferior right hepatic veins (IRHVs) or superficial RHVs are anastomosed.
The IRHV usually has a relatively large diameter also.
The IRHV should be divided beforehand, which will facilitate the management of the other short hepatic veins from the right side.
