Improving outcomes of living donor right hepatectomy

By: Peter Morris | Posted on: 1st March 2013

This article is a single centre review from the National Liver Cancer Centre in Korea of their experience of living donor right hepatectomy between 2005 and 2011 and includes 300 consecutive living donors. The authors examine the data in three cohorts of 100 donors. The overall complication rate was 16% and there were no deaths. However in the last cohort of 100 donors the complication rate was just 3%. This experience from Korea is quite remarkable and I thought worth a note, although not a randomised trial!
